Hi, everyone-what a beautiful spring! I've planted a new perennial garden-mainly butterfly & hummer attractors & it looks awesome---I decided to try the 'Grif's Select Gardenia'; supposedly able to grow in the Mid-Atlantic region. I live in Catonsville,Md. The plant is growing but some of the leaves have turned yellow.Any suggestions on why? All other plants in this garden are doing well (other than a bit of powdery mildew which I have under control.) I'd love to see this plant thrive!!!! Help! also, I planted a bit of honey suckle but something keeps pulling it out of the ground--didn't realize honeysuckle would be a victim of critter raiding...I suspect my cat-are they attracted to honeysuckle????
Hey hey, I bought 2 Gardenias this spring, keep them on the table on my deck in pots, not a problem so far, they bloomed like crazy when it was cooler, but now they are just growing new leaves, I keep 'em as moist as possible (not a problem recently as we all know), spray them with messenger every so often and give them a regular water mist every day, Gardenias don't like to be dry it seems and not too much direct sun...:) They got some yellow leaves, but perked up when I started misting them with messenger and water. I heard MANY horror stories about growing Gardenias but thought what the hey and tried anyway. Planting them in the ground does not seem to be an option...(I do not have the guts) Now ask me next spring if they survived indoors during the winter!!
