powdery mildew spots on courgette leaves

Posted: 15/06/2017 at 16:32

I've never tried the milk treatment ... I just make sure the soil around the courgette plants is always moist (not boggy).  


Courgettes and a lot of other plants seem to succumb to powdery mildew if they're too dry at the roots.

Yes ... I really do keep it on except at bed and bathtime.  Promise 


The other day OH came home from the city with some Bodyshop Peppermint Foot Lotion ... bless him!  A very gentle application is absolute bliss 

Which plants would you relegate to the compost heap... for good?

There were several threads on White Feather a few years back - I don't think anyone who grew it was pleased with it ... this one stuck in my mind ...

If Bowdens can't grow it then I probably can't either

Hang lots of bird feeders near to your plants ... the blue tit families will find the aphids as they queue up for the feeders.

I find that figs need lots of water in order to produce leaves.

It's nice to share our gardening, and at the moment I'm on the sofa with a broken foot, so I've got time on my hands
