Gardenia Plants


Anonymous added on June 1, 2015 | Answered

We planted a new bed this spring, including a nice gardenia plant. It’s full of buds but when they get almost big enough to pop, they yellow and drop off. What do I need to do to encourage it to bloom? Also, what type of fertilizer should I use? Thank you for any help you can offer.
