: Hi. Does anyone know if the soil where a Rhodie had that was COVERED in sooty mold is infected and needs treatment? It has been cut down to the soil level. I know it is really a didease caused by aphid honeydew, but I can't find any references to the remaining soil. Hope I am explaining this clearly. If it does need treatment, can you suggest an organic method? Thanks for the help!

Hi Donna,
Your soil doesn't need treatment. It's the aphids or other bugs that produce the honeydew that would need treatment. If they arean't there, then you won't have any problems with it. Here's a site that might be helpful.

If you have any further problems with it on other shrubs, here's a site that sells environmentally friendly stuff.
