When did you last feed it? I can see flower buds? #gardenia-advice @deekay @lovestogarden

Haha @brightcolours Sussanah and I were just discussing the trying time we have had with Gardenias 😂😂 I have no practical experience, I have read that Epsom salts are good for yellowing leaves though.

Yes, I’d heard about the #epsomsalttip but you only use it depending on why the leaves are yellowing... www.flowerpower.com.au/gardening/gardenia-care-in-spring/ @deekay

Actually those leaves may be just normal old leaf fall @brightcolours If they are plucked off that might be the end of it

I feed it a general fertiliser about 3 weeks ago. We have had a lot of rain lately. It is yet to flower this year and yes buds are there.

Can i take it somewhere or is there a way to test the soil? It is two years old

Did you read the article I posted above? Has it been a cold, dry winter where you are? Have you been watering regularly? Have you stuck your finger in the soil to see if it’s wet, dry or just right?

I put my fingers in the soil and it was a little dry not much. I have watered it now and will fertilise tomorrow morning

To make sure you get someone's attention eg to reply or ask a Q or say thanks, you need to put an @ in front of their name so they get a notification eg @BrightColours 😊

Why are my leaves turning this colour. What should I be doing? We live across from the beac. The plant is 3 years old and behind a brick wall.
