Gardenia Dropping Leaves & Buds
I live in Central Ohio and this past week the weather turned cold. I have my gardenia in a bay window that faces due West. I recieved this plant in May - it was about 6 inches tall. It has doubled in size since then and about a week ago, it had a dozen buds on it and looked very healthy. Now suddenly the leaves are falling off as are the buds. I have not changed the watering. I repotted it a few months ago. The only thing that has changed is - like i said - the weather outside has turned cold. I didn't turn on my furnace til the temps dipped into the 60's.
Any ideas as to how i can keep this plant alive? And what i have done wrong to cause the leaf and bud drops?
