My last crop of peas last year ended up with powdery mildew all over the plant. I have since found out that I should use bicarbonate spray. Can anyone tell me...do I buy this or make it myself. I would prefere to make things myself, that way I know what is going on to my plants.
Any advice would be great.......thank you in advance
A better cure for powdery mildew and other mildew on almost anything, as well as for mites, gold top milk. Spray this and it will cure most things
I learnt this from a lecturer at the Sparsholt Science College
It breaks down the mildew and also breaks down the body of the mites
as Darren states milk is very good for curing Mildew, you might also try a variety which is resistant such as Dorrian. As far North as I am mildew is not a problem till well into September but I do keep an eye open for it.
I got mildew as I planted them to close together.
