Cultural Notes: Prune lightly after flowering to maintain shape. Water well, especially in warmer months when the plant is flowering. Fertilise regularly during the growing season. We suggest Harry's Gardenia Food. PESTS & PROBLEMS: Yellowing Leaves – usually a sign of magnesium deficiency and can be treated with Epsom Salts. Bud Drop – This is when buds fall or drop off the plant just before blooming. This is most commonly due to lack of water. Nematodes – can lead to leaf yellowing and may kill gardenias if not treated. Scale Insects – use white oil to rid the plants of these pests. Weevils, aphids, thrip, mealy bugs and hawk moth caterpillars – use a general pest spray to manage these pests. We suggest the Yates Confidor Insecticide Range.
