Hi Hollie-Hock - just for the record, p/permangante is actually an organic gardening method - I found it in my old fashioned organic gardening book by Lawrence D Hill - he's v strict about his organic methods, ones that don't harm beneficial insects etc and knows his stuff. Altho I agree that it sounds drastic! Its also used for some skin conditions as a mild antiseptic.
But as the milk solution is a quick and easy way to put the PM on hold at least, I haven't tried the p/permang.
But autumn sowing also helps with PM resistance, apparently.
