I bought 2 Gardenia 8 months ago as very small plants and potted them on , kept them in a cool conservatory and they thrived. However ,I have since moved house and they now live on two window sills in a hallway. One gardenia is looking very pale and started loosing its leaves , it is covered in a sticky web (which I have now removed most of ) it is looking very sad. The other one is still a healthy dark green and very glossy ! Can anyone tell me what to spray on the pale one or will I lose it completely ? Many thanks in advance.



A sticky web is usually Red Spider Mite. This is encouraged by hot dry conditions. Spray with Provado Ultimate Bug Killer as recommended on the packaging.
