The tips of my gardenia buds are turning yellow. Help!

Oh goodness! I hope we can figure out what is wrong with your gardenia.

Are the leaves also yellow? If so, the soil pH is too high and the gardenia isn’t able to benefit from the iron you have added. A soil test can help answer that question. If so, use an amendment to lower the pH and the plant will be able to take up the iron.

Thanks for writing!
