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

July in the garden!!

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

Tomato leaf problems - help

Posted: 08/07/2012 at 05:44

My tomatoes in the greenhouse are growing in flower buckets with the bottoms cut on top of grobags. I have made a few holes in the bottom of the bags so they don't get waterlogged. The reason for  not watering  erratically is that the tomatoes can get Blossom end rot. The weather does dictate how much water the plants need - when it is hot and sunny ( this year that is a joke!) they need a lot more. I have 2 plants per grobag and feed with Tomorite once a week.
