Why does my gardenia keep putting out buds, but then fall off without opening?
My Gardenia is lush and green. It keeps growing new buds but they fall off almost immediately after forming. Sometimes where they fall off it is brown and mushy. Sometimes they are firm and green where they separated. What am I doing wrong?
