Re: Some interesting before and after pics (Gardenias and Fatsia)
Yes, I've been fairly impressed with the Fatsia, it has done about as well as I could hope for... if it did much better, I'd have to find a different spot for it, as it is in a relatively small space.
The rhodos are a mixed bag. My Yaku Angel died this summer (mostly from lack of water, I believe). The R. macabeanum is doing decent... still suffered from sunburn this summer, I hope it grows out of this. The other interesting rhodo I have is a R. longipes var. chienianum, which is doing well.
