my new gardinia plants are dropping their buds before they fully bloom. What are my doing wrong? They're in a big pot underneath my pergola.

You're not doing anything wrong. Gardenias drop their flower buds when the humidity is low and the temperatures are too warm. You can't change the weather but you can try misting your plant every morning to increase humidity immediately around your gardenia. I find they bloom best in the late winter/early spring and again after a monsoon. They also bloom well in the fall. Wish I had more fixes to share!
