Thanks everyone - I will be persistent as I don't want to use a chemical spray - the greenhouse will most likely smell like a dairy

Thanks Geoff  A few years ago we visited a garden in Cornwall where they gardened by the phases of the moon- the chap there told us about the milk thingy and I thought he said full cream milk What shall I do - decisions ,decisions !!!

Powdery mildew

Quite a few of my Cucumber leaves have developed powdery mildew already

I don't want to use a chemical spray and seem to remember something about using full cream milk and water - I think the ratio was 1 part milk to 9 parts water . Does anyone know about this ,please

Beautiful plants The Potsmith - I love your Aquilegia and PoppiesI love your Meadowsweet  Gracie The garden is very soggy at the moment - we have been deadheading the front garden today - took ages! I just hope we get a couple of good days before the 22nd or our visitors will think our garden is rubbish.

I will do a video just after our open day all being well
