Do you both live in the same location?

I would still question whether indoor Jasmine will survive outside in the winter in the uk

How to beat Botrytis?

Posted: 09/03/2015 at 08:27

Take off the foliage with the botrytis on carefully so you don't spread the spore, then give a few puffs of yellow sulphur ( you can find this at most garden centres ) go really easy with any watering as botrytis loves damp conditions then hopefully you should be ok.If its not logical to take the foliage off  just use the sulphur and hopefully this will still work.

if I'm storing any barefoot plants over winter, before I put them to store I always use sulphur.

Mm mm Hostas I love a hosta called Niagra Falls, it's huge and has a positive ripple to the leaves.

I also like the hydrangea Limelight and the Abelia Confetti.
