Black dirty leaves on my gardenia, what should I treat it with?

Submitted: 10:17AM, 27 Jun 2015
Answer: It sounds like you have sooty mould on your gardenia. This is usually caused by sap sucking insects producing honey dew which then creates the environment for the mould to grow on. We suggest you use Yates PestOil to control the sap sucking insect and thus the sooty mould. The PestOil will also help to loosen the sooty mould so it can wash off in the rain or when watered.
