buds that form turn brown and drop so no flowers. Also leaves turning brown and dropping off. What should I do?

Welcome! @Chappaqua. The first thing to do is to go to your Profile, and update your public profile, listing your city/state or at a minimum, your USDA zone.

It would also be helpful to know how you are growing your plant(s). We are here to help you but need that information.

Hi chappaqua, Welcome!

I wonder if it could be a spider mite issue? They are sometimes extremely difficult to see but they feed on the buds which turn brown/black and then drop off.
