One of my Gardenias leaves are turning yellow at an alarming rate...

I have two Gardenias planted beside each other, one is a Kleims Hardy and the other a Crown Jewel. For some reason though, one of them has leaves that are turning yellow. They have been planted about 3 months now and started off fine. I'm a bit unsure why one would be doing this but the one beside it seems quiet healthy? They both get the same amount of sunlight and water.

If anyone can help me out that would be great!


  • Sometimes they tend to go through a phase where they drop leaves at an alarming rate but they stop quite quickly. Mine did the same mid season but looks absolutely glorious now and is about to flower. My only worry is the two plants are too closely planted, they'd want to double or triple in size within a couple of you may have to move one of them.

  • Hey, thanks for the reply!

    Great to see it's probably nothing to worry about. I'm very new to this so it's good to know i'm not losing another plant!

    Completely understand about the lack of space, these arrived before I was expecting them and instead of keeping them in a tiny pot while waiting for their new home I thought it would be better to get them planted and let them settle in and then move them.

    Thanks again for your reply!
