Answer: Bud drop is frequently a sign of inconsistent watering, so try to keep the soil evenly moist--neither saturated nor dry. I suspect the indoor plants may be getting too much water. Check the soil with your finger before watering. The plants outdoors in clay pots will probably require more frequent watering than the indoor plants, because the clay is porous and because the plants are subjected to drying winds.
