Hi all
The leaves on my honeysuckle are going blackish i havent noticed anything eating at them,it has grown to about 6' and new leaves also turning same colour.I repotted it in early june and seemed to be doing well am training it on trellis against a wall i really dont to lose it any suggestions greatly appreciated!!!



Does the black rub off? If so it could be sooty mould, this usually follows on from an aphid attack. The aphids exude a sugary sap that the mould then grows on. Check under the leaves for the aphids and if they are there then spray them with an appropriate insecticide. The leaves will drop later and watch out for the same next year.
