Its very important that our Gardenia plants have sufficient moisture – but how do we retain the moisture and so improve our gardenias chance of survival? The answer is the regular application of mulch. Mulch? What is mulch? The term mulch is given to any type of material that put or spread on the top of the soil. The primary purpose of using a mulch is to improve the moisture retention in the soil and keeping it cool, but it also does a fine job of suppressing weeds and some garden pests too. If your using an organic mulch like bark then this will rot and decompose over time adding to the soils nutrients.
