My newly transplanted cape jasmine bushes both have yellow leaves that are dropping off. We have had a lot of rain lately, could this be the problem? Or, perhaps they are lacking in nutriets that are not in my soil? They were potted before transplantation. Thank you!

I am almost certain that the rainfall has something to do with the yellowing leaves. Plants can suffer some transplant shock which might cause yellowing leaves, but saturated soils can add to the stress. Jasmines are fairly sturdy plants, though, so I think they will recover - if it ever stops raining!
