I have a gardenia bush that I bought for 5$ at a local nusury. The bush is about 24 in tall and wide and very green and in good shape. I want to save it over the winter so that i can enjoy it here next spring and summer. Does anyone know how I can overwinter it here in Iowa? I am not interested in it blooming over the winter, just staying alive.....will keeping it indoors with grow lights keep it alive or should i treat it like a rose bush and cut it back and place in the garage with a plastic bag over it? please help!!!
