Check gardenia for whitefly before they settle in for summer

16 May

Almost every yard in the south has at least one gardenia. Planted by generations of gardeners for their exotically fragrant white blossoms, these tough evergreen shrubs are salt tolerant, drought tolerant and deer resistant. One thing they cannot resist is the tiny whitefly. These petite pests cause gardenia leaves to turn yellow and plants to appear dark or sooty. If this describes the gardenia in your yard now is the time to check for whitefly and determine if treatment is needed. http://www.topsailadvertiser.com/news/growing-coastal/check-gardenia-for-whitefly-before-they-settle-in-for-summer-1.144127
