Best cure for Powdery mildew?
« on: September 20, 2018, 11:46:31 AM »
My pumpkins and goji berries recently got some pretty heavy powdery mildew, what are your experiences with remedies?
Should I use a fungicide? Baking soda/oil/soap? Neem oil?

Please share! Thanks!

People usually just remove all the affected leaves to save the healthy leaves. I think fungus needs to be treated BEFORE they get into the leaves, so you canít really save the infected parts.
