Larry had to take the end of the porch on the shop off to get the gardenia structure out.
This is a really good place for a gardenia bush because when it blooms, the fragrance is wonderful when we're sitting on the porch. But this year it didn't bloom because the cold killed the plant down to the ground last year. It put out from the roots, but it blooms on last year's new growth. So we are hoping for blooms next year. I'm going to put mulch around the base to help seal it in.
I've rooted more gardenias. They are in the greenhouse right now, but I'm looking forward to planting them in my tire garden next spring.
I didn't vacuum any leaves up today. They're likely to still be there tomorrow.
