Gardenia Bush Dropping Buds

Marste added on June 9, 2012 | Answered

I just purchased a gardenia bush and have it inside next to a huge window. The buds are dropping and there is a white oily substance on the bush at the joint on some of the stem. It is putting on new leaves but I concerned. Never seen this before. Thanks, Marste
