    苹果彩票Hi, I would like to know where can we buy gardenias in Hong Kong.

    苹果彩票Is it a good house plant?

    Can we keep it small and tiny in a flower pot?

    Is it hard to take care of gardenias at home?

      Hi, gardenias species flowers can be found in Fa Yuen Street, Prince Edward, Kowloon. There are a number of plant shops where you can find at the right season

      Some Gardenias are good at indoor while some grow well in wild life.

      As they are seasonal flowers, they will wither after floral season, you can still keep the plant in the pot as leaves are ever green.

      It requires adequate sunlight and still survive in partially shaded area. Avoid too much water though.

      Hope you can find one pot and bring life in your residential unit.

      Best
