Q.What Is Causing This?

Zone NP11 6BH | sue56 added on May 6, 2022 | Answered

Just two years ago this Camellia japonica Brushfield Yellow was healthy. Dark green shiny leaves and an abundance of yellow and white flowers. Last year I had a problem with sooty mould on the leaves but still loads of flowers. This year once again, the bush provided us with a beautiful display of flowers, but the leaves are not fairing so well. My husband used Neem oil a few weeks ago, but the leaves have not improved. Any advice please?

BushDoctor thank you for your quick reply! When my husband applied the Neem oil we did not spray it on our camellia bush but poured the Neem oil mixture around the drip line of the bush. Could that have still caused this problem? Thank you for the links I will look at them.
