My Orange Tree (indoor) Had An Aphid Attack And Now Won\’t Stop Producing Honeydew. What Can I Do To Stop It Please?
The orange tree is about 3 yrs old. It is kept indoors most of the time. I feed it with citrus food when required. It has produced a few oranges. It blossomed late last year which was unexpected, producing new fruit whilst the original ones were still ripening. The new fruit have since all fallen off when they were still very small. I have sprayed it with soapy water and removed aphids by hand also but I can't stop it from producing honeydew which is making quite a mess. Any advice appreciated.
