Q.yellow leaves on new gardenia bush

Zone southeast | midgegloe added on June 26, 2012 | Answered

I planted a new gardenia bush outside in a partly shady area – gets shade in the afternoon, morning sun. The leaves are turning yellow. I have been watering a good bit because it is so dry here in the south. Am I watering too much, not enough? How much should I water?
