Gardenia Leaves Turn Yellow

Anonymous added on April 14, 2011 | Answered

Gardenia bushes are healthy and bloom heavily. But some leaves (10%) turn yellow in spring through fall. Once winter arrives, all the leaves stay green. I spray for aphids and other insects every two weeks and apply fungicide alternating weeks. I try not to over water and the area drains well. Any ideas on what to try next?
