Camellias in January

1,219 Views
This is the first year that this plant is really nice. Every year I had lots of buds but they fell off the plant.

I read about diseases/bugs on Hometalk and sprayed the plants even though they had many buds & it worked. I love Hometalk.

    I am fairly new to Hometalk, so could you please share what you sprayed your camellias with? Thanks.

    Julie, let me tell you the symptoms - the underside of the leaves turned black although there was white & black on top. We used NEEM but you have to be sure to spray the entire plant & both sides of the leaves. Neem is a natural alternative to synthetic pesticides & that is why I chose it. We sprayed it twice after we noticed the problem.
