blooms with the temple Jasmine

Zone 34677 | Anonymous added on August 7, 2018 | Answered

I have a potted temple Jasmine, every year around Spring time it blooms well, after one set of bloom the flowers do not come as healthy as they did in the beggining. Either the buds fall off when they are little or they turn reddish brown as if they are getting dried. i do not see any significant damage to the leaf. Could you advise what can I do to make it better? Thank you

    Bud drop can be due to watering issues, environmental problems, pests and disease.

    My best guess is Thrips that can cause buds to appear cut off.

    Some pests can be difficult to see. Neem Oil is a good treatment and is organic, safe for people, pets and bees.
