I have two groupingss of three gardenia radicans in my front borderlandscaped two years ago. In each group two are doing well while the third looks pretty sick after losing lots of leaves. I fertilize them with Miracid and have given them ironite on the advice of a Master Gardener friend of mine. Why would four do so beautifully and two other in the same soil, next to the others, fed and watered exactly the same wither and are ready to die. I lost one under the same circusmtances last year and replaced it this Spring. It's doing just fine.
Any advice?
Thanks!
Sasha

plants do have a life span. Is it possible that the plants you are discussing had just reached the end of theirs?

These plants are only 2 years old, so I don't believe that could be the problem, but thanks for your reply.

I've had problems with gardenias too. Could it be that the spot where the sick ones are doesn't drain as well?
