Hello bamboo ... you recommended part milk/water spray as a fungicide against mildew in a gardening question about stacchys. Is this mix good for other plants like my aqualegia, which always go mouldy at this time of year?! Thank you so much.



Yes - 1 part milk to 9 parts water, and I'm told its better if you use full fat or semi skimmed, not skimmed. I've never tried it, but it has been scientifically trialed with good results for mildew generally.

I tried it on a Honeysuckle this year that always suffers from mildew with very good results.
