  • Gardenia help please!

    Hi all
    I am very new to gardening and my knowledge consists of Google and my Yates NZ gardening guide. Anyway I received a beautiful Gardenia and Camellia tree from work colleagues, and unfortunately planted the gardenia in the wrong place. It had inadequate drainage, and all the leaves have dropped and there is no new growth. After speaking to people at Oderings, I have put gravel and sand under the bottom of the soil to help, and moved it to a sheltered position.
    I am just wondering if this tree will survive, or is there anything else I can do to help its chances?
    Any advice much appreciated.
