I transplanted a gardenia bush from a pot to the ground a month ago. I planted it in a mixture of peat and potting soil and it receives sun from morning until around 2:00. I also have been giving it water soluble, acid-based fertilizer weekly. It receives water 3-4 times a week. It appears to have gone dormant and the leaves are drooping and dull. No new growth at all. What can I do to revive the plant?
I am new to gardening and this plant was a gift. Once the flower dies, should I just remove the dead petals, or how far down the stem should I go?
We want to get two gardenias, but where we want them the sun is brutal from about 11:30 or 12:30 to about 4 pm. I usually go out to water the plants and kinda cool them off around 2 pm. If we keep the gardenia moist during the day, could it survive the heat that long?
All of a sudden the leaves are turning brown on several branches on a potted gardenia. We have sprayed for white flies. Is there anything else we can do to help this problem? There is new growth everywhere on the plant.
There are brown edges on my gardenia bush. Why?
I have a potted gardenia that I have had for three years. Last year and now again this year the buds form, open part way, turn brown and die. This is a potted plant on my patio and I live in Florida.
My gardenia really suffered over the winter. In late winter, my yard person cut it back to the point there are no leaves or growth. Will it come back?
