How to save gardenia from bugs
Last month i bought a gardenia plant. Im new to gardening. Initially i kept my plant in a gallery but then i found out a bug on a back side of leaf with eggs. So i cleaned it. After that incident i regularly check gardenia plant. Some times i keep it out in gallery and sometimes i keep inside my house near patio. Today i saw very tiny brown spot on 2 leaves. But they were bugs. So i cleaned it with misting on leaves. My Q is
How to control bug issue?
When i bought gardenia i had a bud which is one month ago. Now my gardenia is having 6 or more buds on it. But when will them bloom???? Its been a month for 1st little bud.
I have planted that gardenia in miracle grow potting mix.
10 days ago i gave it good watering with acidic plant food water soluble of same brand( miracle grow).
