Powdery mildew is a white film that grows on plant leaves and blooms. It occurs when there isn’t enough air circulation between plants. We are trying an organic solution to powdery mildew. It’s a 50/50 milk & water mix. Anyone else have an organic solution to powdery mildew?
UPDATE: It’s the end of the growing season and we are in late Autumn. We are happy to report that the 50/50 solution of water and milk worked very well. We avoid using chemicals such as pesticides and fungicides. We prefer to use organic solutions. For the beginner gardener, organic solutions are natural, cheap, and safe for your garden! Minimize the use of pesticides and watch the beautiful birds and beneficial insects grace your garden!
For beginner gardeners, keeping an eye on your plants to check for disease is very important. On a regular basis, check for insects, fungus, and dry soil. Visit your local Home Depot, Lowes, online Burpee Gardening or eBay for beautiful flowers such as Geraniums!
