Do you have Gardenia, and just how difficult is it to keep?

I've been thinking about getting one mail-order, but having read about its temperature requirements, it seems likely that it will suffer in the post. Have you had one delivered that prospered? Have you managed to propagate them? Trying to get seeds to germinate sounds like a lot of trouble.
The one I did best with I re-potted almost as soon as I got it home, then kept it on a windowsill that had proved successful before. I had it for a year or two, but lost it when inevitably I fell behind on the watering, misting and general care. Lovely plants and scent, but prima donnas!
But I love the scent so much so I ordered a 'hardy' one from Sarah Raven. I just want to give it a go. It is supposed to be sent out in May.
