: : : I recently dug up two Gardenia plants and replanted them. They don't look so good. I put compost down when I planted and have been watering them every couple of days. The leaves are starting to turn yellow and the branches are drooping. HELP!
: : Unless you live in the desert and it's over 80* every day, stop watering so much. An inch of water a week is enough.

: Well I don't live in a desert, but I do live you south west Florida and the average temp in in the mid to upper 80's.
Hmmm, now you've got me to wondering. I still think it's too much water, but I could be wrong. Take a look at this site and see if it helps.
