I planted a gardenia bush in my back yard. After a couple weeks of being planted i started to see new growth but the leaves on it continue to turn yellow then brown and fall off. What is going on all of my other flowers and roses are beautiful.

Too much water. Watch when the leaves droop. Add some water dig a trench, to retain moist w/o actually over watering.
you must live in a sub tropical or tropical area, sounds like you might of had a little cool weather and the plant is trying to come back.  Wait until it is much warmer to trim lightly.
