Leaf Browning on Gardenia Plant

Anonymous added on February 2, 2011 | Answered

My Gardenia plant leaves brown out on the edges. The plant flowers once a year but continues to look sickly. I fertilized often (Miracle Grow) and also used a liquid acid booster fertilizer, but the plant has not responded as I would like. Any advice would be appreciated.
