My husband has recently purchased 5 new 12 inch gardenias for me cause he wants me to get rid of my 6-7 foot gardenias so they don’t have to be moved indoors in the winter, it’s a hard job but I’m not getting rid of them!!! The new ones are in 12 inch pots, should I transplant to a larger pot or keep them in 12 inch pots. I haven’t transplanted the big ones in years.

Hi, welcome to the forum!
Haha I think your husband secretly understands what you like… more plants!
I wouldn’t repot the new ones quite yet. As it is, they’ve already got lots of room still in their 12-inch pots. It’ll only be perhaps next year or the one after that that they’ll need a new, slightly larger pot.
Do you mean to say the older ones are also still in their original 1 foot pot? How do you keep them from tipping over?
Maybe as a counter-gift you could offer your husband a set of wheelie trays to put the pots on so they’re easier to move when the time comes… 😛 😛
