Hello! My name is Jose Zuniga and I am representing expertvillage.com. Now we are to that point, we can plant our gardenias now. We have our holes ready to go. We mixed our topsoil which is great and now what we need to get is get our gardenia. What we are going to do now is we are going to get some topsoil. We need to have some on the ground level. What we are going to do now is gently pull the gardenia from the container; there we go. It still has little bit of soil on the roots so go ahead and just put it there. Use the remaining soil as well all around it. Remember as you are adding soil to it don't make it tight. We want it to be loose because if you do that,what is going to happen is the root is going to go where it wants to go and won't have any pressure. There we go. Perfect. This is fantastic. And what we need to do is add a little bit more of the coffee grains and later on when you water it, the coffee grains has the acid and it is going to penetrate the entire plant underneath it where the roots are. Perfect. This is how we plant Gardenias.
