Will my gardenias recover?
I think I made a big boo-boo! Last year we bought two lovely gardenia bushes. We planted them in pretty pots in the front yard. They did ok, except the buds kept falling off just before they would bloom. Only a small few actually bloomed. This past fall, I was afraid to leave them out for the winter because we had planted one in the ground the year before, and it didn't make it. So, I repotted them and brought them in. The leaves all fell off, but a couple of months ago, they started getting new leaves. This week, I moved them back outside and fed them. The leaves were only on the tops of the branches for the most part. Now, some of them are turning yellow. They look so sad. Did I ruin them? Should I have just let them over-winter outside? Will they recover??
