I have it on my pulmonarias and lupins in the drier, full sun borders, elsewhere they are fine. Honeysuckle is OK. Teh only way to avoid is keep well watered in dry weather- water on an evening or early morning to prevent evaporation and use a mulch on those areas.
The honeysuckle will be fine -With the honeysuckle and pulmonaris once it has flowered- prune, which will get rid of the mildew and will give you better flowers next year or a second flush later in the year.
Just reminded me to go and shear my "frosted" pulmonarias and replant some in a shadier moister border!
l have a giant Amaryllis bulb that is in leaf but no flower,it produced three large flowers last christmas, l have given it a feed once a month will this stop it flowering again this year as l didnot think it would grow in the summer
Lorraine, is it in a container? If so how big?
What sort of compost?
How often are you watering it and how much?
Then just give it plenty of water - in dry spells a bucket full every other day
The damaged leaves will probably die and fall, but it'll recover and grow some more.
Aw bless them
I have a small Crimson King maple which was planted this Summer but now has white powdery mildew over nearly all of the leaves. Can you please advise the best treatment? Is it through too much water or not enough or is the soil lacking something? Should I remove all the leaves before they are due to fall this Autumn?
