Black stuff on leaves looks like fungus, losing leaves, blooms not near as pretty as last year. Not sure what it is or what to do. Any suggestions? Thanks, Russ
Ding! ding! we have a winner! Aphids excretion is kinda sweet. Its called honeydew by us. Ants will herd aphids like cattle sometimes. Spill a coke and wait a couple of days. Know that slime it develops? Black sooty mold.....same as aphids.TimOub007 said:Black stuff? Sounds like it could be aphids. You can get a spray/mix at the big box stores that should cover a lot of 'ailments'.
