RE: August Beauty Gardenia

When you figure out what the problem is let me know.  I have a "first love"
gardenia with the exact same problem.  Was in part sun (afternoon), got
plenty of water, fertilized with organics, added iron, nothing helped.
Looked awful this spring- dug it up and moved it to a new home, to see if it
helps.  Will get more shade now (I have no idea it this will help- was just
desperate!).  So- anybody know how to make a gardenia happy?  They grow all
over the place here- with horrible neglect even and look way better than

Good luck-

Subject: [CHAT] August Beauty Gardenia

Is any one growing Gardenia jasminoides "August Beauty"?  I'm having lots of
yellowing leaves on a plant given to me by a neighbor.  It's getting full
sun, in a 12" plastic pot, rich potting soil with added compost; watered to
keep it moist.  I googled it, and discovered that it needs iron and so have
adjusted the fertilizing.

Since this gentleman sees this plant daily, and it's the only one with a
yellow leaf problem, I'd like to solve the problem so he doesn't think I'm
neglecting it.  It is covered with buds (so far, no bud drop), and it will
be a beautiful thing when the flowers open, providing it doesn't loose all
its leaves first!

Any ideas?
