Q.Why are my leaves turning yellow then brown on my Gardenia?
My Gardenia is very young (received in fall of 2011) and has few new leaves coming out. Some of the leaves are green but others are yellowing and turning brown tipped. I have my plant in a small container outside in full sun. We have had 31/2 inches of rain in the last couple days and I water my plants every Monday. I water with Miracle Grow 1x month. The temps are fluctuating weekly here 40-70 eve’s. /early am to 55 to 80 afternoon/day.
