My big red lily pillies which are 3 years old are looking yellow and sparse.

Should I spray with confidor or white oil

Answer: Hi Beth,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Sparse and yellow growing is likely due to lack of feeding and pruning. I would suggest improving pruning regularly and add fertiliser every 6-8 weeks. Try Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser. It’s certified for use in organic gardens and will help create a nutrient rich soil for better root growth, stronger plants and more flowers and fruit! It can be used on gardens all year round, including native plants.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturist
