When is the best time to prune gardenia bushes?

The best time to prune is right after they flower.

Gardenias flower on old wood. This time of year, they have already formed their flower buds for the year. Enjoy the flowers and then prune as needed to keep the size and shape in check. Fortunately, gardenias don’t need to be pruned every year. Of course, if there is a branch driving you crazy, it’s ok to cut it back.
