    I have been trying everything I read on websites to make my Gardenia Bush to come back to a really nice bush. Every website says something different. So I am not sure what I need to do to get it back to a full bush. It has hardly any leaves and never flowered last year. Also, I had a really huge Aloe Vera plant and the freeze got it, even covered up. It is now trying to make some new sprouts, but some are coming out of where the humungous leaves were. And they have all gooey leaves which are dying, but new leaves are coming out from the awful looking plants. I want to remove the big dead plant leaves which are now attached to the stalk. I used garden shears to cut all the dead (frozen) leaves from the plant, via info on the web, It looks really terrible and it was so magnificent. I would like to get it back to where it would grow back like it was but I really need some progressional help on how to do it.
