The leaves on my gardenia are turning brown. Should I fertilize?

Before fertilizing, let’s figure out what’s causing the problem.

Probably, it’s too much water. Too much water and poor drainage will cause the leaves to brown and drop off. If the leaves are yellowing and dropping off, it’s a sign the gardenia needs fertilizer. I hope this helps and your gardenia gets better soon!

Thanks for writing!
