Dear Michael,

My potted C.’Gisela’ that I was so happy to see have a huge bud and that did so well last year looks sick. The bud was huge and turned green but a thin leaf emerged and the inside looks hollow and rotten. (See attached pictures). The plant was very healthy last year, did not flower, but had a nice long growing season. The bud was huge as well. All I can think was it didn't vernalize sufficiently. I would have left it outside but who knew we'd have such a warm winter. I think my garage averaged 45 - 50 degrees.

Any thoughts what happened? I was so looking forward to see my first gisela blossom. Needless to say I am heart-broken!
