My gunners which is planted by our pond, has developed a white powdery mildew for the third year in succession. What could be causing this & how can I prevent it recurring please?

spider mites are an outdoor curse here in reno-the hot dry summers are perfect for them-soft evergreens(alberta spruce)can be killed in amatter of weeks-unfortunately people refuse to believe that they can be controlled and eliminated just by giving a sqirt with the hose whenever you go by-spraying chems is seldom effective

valdel-the way to eliminate powdery mildew is not to grow the plant-the climate and cultural conditions that let it flourish are difficult for gardeners to eliminate-some plants are resistant in some situations some are not

My lemon verbena (Aloysia citrodora) Got this not long ago. Sadly I had to bin both of the plants what I had growing on my window seal in my bed room. But there is always next year. My Aloes and Cyclamen were able to avoid getting it tho, which is good :)

Powdery mildew proliferates in dry summers or in dry conditions. Is the gunnera crowded by other plants and is the soil wet enough to support a large pond-side plant like this?
