My next-door neighbor gave me some cuttings from her gardenias about a month ago. I set them in water and enjoyed the smell...being from Indiana originally, I had never seen gardenias before. Since I hate to throw out anything that looks like it is still alive, the cuttings have sat since I got them. I looked today (was actually surprised that the leaves were still green) and saw that the plants had started to grow roots. My question is...since it is now mid-July...do I plant these outdoors (I live near the foothills in North Carolina) or do I pot them as houseplants and wait til next year to plant them outside? HELPPPPPP!!!!

Hi Lynnemarie, put them out and keep them watered. Don't let them dry out and see what happens. I don't know if they'll keep until the fall like they are.

I live in Monroe, NC. We went to Blowing Rock by way of 321 Saturday and took exit 28, the Maiden Exit to get a Pepsi. We went into a little antique store right there off the exit and bought a kitchen table. Small world.

Thanks for the help.....as hot as it is, I hope they make it. Since I have several, maybe I'll put some outside and try a couple indoors as houseplants til after the first frost....and here I thought I could grow just about anything...that's what I get for thinking...LOL!
