The Q&A Archives: dwarf gardenias

Question: my dwarf gardenias leaves are turning yellow and falling off. We did have a drought here in MS but I watered every day. What could be the problem?

Answer: Candace,

It could be due to too much water, not enough water, lack of nitrogen or a normal cycle in which an evergreen drops some older leaves as new growth is replacing them. Dig down a few inches into the soil to see if it is soggy (not good) or moist (good) or dry (not good).

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
