cause of bud drop of gardenia in large container
Bought a 5 gal gardenia with a ton of buds. Planted in large pot (14" wide by 21" tall) on front porch, lets lots of light but no sun. looked great until buds started to wilt, turn brown and drop. I have 1 healthy looking bud left! What do I need to do for next year??
