Powdery mildew on honeysuckle

Posted: 13/09/2014 at 07:45

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.

In my experience the field slug and the keeled slug are the ones that do the damage

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

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

I'd weed thoroughly first, digging over at the same time to get roots out, before digging any manure in.
