Arbequina Olive Tree

Zone Simpsonville, SC 29681 | Anonymous added on June 16, 2018 | Answered

I just purchased an Arbequina Olive Tree in a decorative container. I am attaching a picture of the white stuff on the leaves. It is not on the new growth. I have tried wetting the leaves and wiping off but it does not work. Any ideas?? Thanks Denise

The image is quite blurry making it difficult to determine what is on your plant.

Neem Oil can be used to treat the leaves.
