Citrus Lemon plants

Zone BN22 0XF | Boxall added on January 30, 2016 | Answered

I have a citrus lemon plant in my conservatory. It has developed sticky deposits on the leaves, and it appears to be on the older leaves. Some buds have just appeared on a new shoot. How can I treat the plant to rid the sticky deposit?
