Solution for Gardenia Scales + Ants
I have a beautiful yellow gardenia that is blooming well, but I just noticed that it has scales and a lot of ants.
I've been spraying with neem oil and washing off the ants, but I'm not sure if either of those help with scales.
Does anyone have a solution that helps rid gardenias of scales?
My gardenia is young (purchased this year), in a large clay pot, and I fertilize it with Hollytone. It's otherwise healthy, until the scales hit.
