i recently planted a gardenia in April here in NC (USDA zone
7?)The other day i noticed that the leaves have started turning yellow but my mom says she sees new buds. I thought it was dehydrated as it had not rained in 3 or 4 days so i gave it a good watering but then it rained for like 3 days straight.What's causing the leaves to turn yellow? I am also afraid I planted it too deep, the base of the plant
is about one inch lower that the surrounding area, is this a problem?
Also, I just bought a new hydrangea bush and am planning on planting it facing west but under a large cedar tree
. Is this a good place for it? I was reading that a composte should be used but i figure potting soil is just as good, am I right?
Sorry for being so long winded!!
