Bay Tree

Posted by Marlene Allick , Mar 10,2006,17:43       Forum

I have a Bay Tree which has been in the porch over winter. It has been ok up until now. Some of the leaves are sticky and the stem of the Bay has little brown spots on it. These spots can be removed with a damp cloth.

I have treated the Bay with an organic spray and placed the Bay outside in the rain for a day. I have now brought it back into the house. The leaves are no longer sticky and the stem is clean.

Any idea what has gone on?
