Hi, I have a very large early flowering camellia tree size with bad sooty mould. How is best to deal with this?
Sooty mould is caused by sucking insects such as scale or aphids. If you look closely you will see bumps on the stem or leaves, or scale insects in the new foliage on the underside of the leaves. We suggest asking your local garden centre or DIY store for a suitable spray for sucking insects to control the insects and therefore the sooty mould.
Thanks, Tui Team
