Care of Gardenia Bush

Anonymous added on April 21, 2011 | Answered

My gardenia bush, which is about 5-6 feet tall, has many yellow leaves. What causes thisĀ and how do I 'fix' it? Also, the bush is getting 'leggy'. Can I prune it (but I'm guessing not until after blooming season, maybe during fall-early winter. I assume the flower buds have already been 'set' for this season)?
