2017.- Honeydew & sooty mould in April-May

2016.- No honeydew or sooty mould this season. Early honeydew falls mid-June.

2015.- Spring: lots of honeydew in the branches, which falls all over the shrubs & herbaceous plants underneath, resulting in their being covered in sooty mould. Started to remove said sooty mould with soapy water, but gave up. Mostly disappeared from end of June.

2013.- Lower branches removed by Rob.

This conifer existed when I bought the property. It must be at least 30 years old…
