    Having problems with my Mandeville . The flower buds are turning brown and falling off.Plant is in pot on west side of house.

  2. Without seeing it may be difficult to identify the problem. Having said that I think your problem may be drying out, especially since it’s on the westside ,which the hottest side of your home. With the high temperatures we are currently incuring it may need more water . How big is your plant and what size container do you have it in and does it have bottom drainage ? Also, could your plant be potbound ? Most container plants usually require repotting to a larger container at least every 2 years. Send me more info ,including a picture of your plant if possible. Thanks for responding to my newsletter. Howard
