Gardenia Bush Dying

Anonymous added on August 26, 2011 | Answered

We have a row of five gardenia bushes. One died about two weeks ago. It looked fine until 48 hours later when it was shriveled and then died. Now the gardenia bush next to it is starting to droop and turn brown. Both plants have been in the same spot for over two years. The third through fifth bushes are in great shape, but I am wondering if there is some disease making its way through the bushes.
