Yes please Fidget

Powdery mildew on honeysuckle

I would remedy the watering and mulch well with leafmould/garden compost.  Feed with Fish Blood and Bone in Feb.

Try to gather fallen affected leaves and burn.    I'm sure it;ll recover.  If you see growth next year that has died back you can take that out then.

Frank - so glad you're back and on the mend - you've been missed. 

Alan, glad all has gone well - don't overdo it!

Enjoy your gardens, both of you - gardens really are the best medicine

I agree with Steve and Punkdoc

Yes - and I've managed to pull some weeds up.  Think I'm going to need the Under gardener's help at the weekend to sow some peas and broad beans - got to prep the beds first
