Dying Gardenia Bushes

Anonymous added on May 4, 2011 | Answered

I have had 5 beautiful, healthy gardenia bushes for ten years. They bloom twice a year and are lovely. Suddenly this year I've noticed some brown spots andĀ upon closer inspection have realized 4 of 5 bushes have dead spots in them-branches just dead. What could be the reason for this, and is there a way to stop it?
