Oh - it has mildew, Jacque! Such a lovely colour, too. I think a remedy is to spray it with very diluted milk...there's probably something on sale as well, though.

Not tried the milk Spritz ! After you have treated them Jacque try to avoid watering them from above,I know you say you haven't had much rain recently.

I am trying to think where I picked up that tip, Aster. I hope it works! All the cats in the neighbourhood will be sniffing the flowers! LOL.

Maybe fungi like acidic conditions and milk is an alkali ? God job it's not high summer-could smell a little cheesy lol

LOL. That could well be it, Aster. Worth a try, anyway. A cheap and cheerful remedy!
