NYC gardenia cutting garden

photos: m&j

With three gardenia plants growing currently at our place on 16th street (some given as recent birthday gifts), we are truly spoiled when it comes to having sweet, heady posies on hand (and at nose) virtually at all times. They need lots of sun and water, but are otherwise quite easy and we’ve had luck keeping them alive over the winter – which is always a happy surprise. An occasional handful of coffee grounds makes them extra happy). These three cuttings in a hanging glass votive holder from our favorite shop of the moment, Haven’s Kitchen makes a pretty nosegay anywhere in the house, especially when entertaining – and so much nicer than just lighting a scented candle!
