Q.My Oleander Bush Flowers Are Turning Brown In Bud.

Anonymous added on June 12, 2021 | Answered

the bush seems to produce flower buds but they never develop. The turn brown and sometimes they have small millipede type insects in the buds. W have had them about six weeks from Thompson and Morgan. It has been suggested that this a disease and that we need to take them out of the soil and repot then in fresh compost. Does this sound like a sensible action.
