Gardenias blooming twice

My gardenia bushes were doing poorly, probably because our sandy soil is too lime rich, so I put some acid based fertilizer, coffee grounds for three weeks and a little epsom salt around the drip line and under the bushes.

Now, lo and behold, I am getting an entire new bloom. There are hundreds of new leaf bunches along with flower pods. In about a month or so, we'll get the second bloom of the year from this deliciously sweet smelling set of bushes. They also afford significant privacy without entirely obscuring the view out the front, since they are not a really dense evergreen.

I thought it was cool that simply changing the Ph of the soil and adding some magnesium and chelated iron, we could fake out our bushes and make them think it was may again.

cool. A friend offered me her rose bush- come and dig it up. I went- and no way. Too big.

So I took some cuttings.
