It’s gross, white and sticking all over your plants, here’s how to tell powdery mildew it to F’off…
WHAT IS IT?
It’s a fungus mate - it won’t kill your plant but it will weaken it and make it look naasty.
HOW TO GET RID
Keep it organic lads, if you’ve only noticed a few patches then nip them off and give your bush a trim, it loves stuffy conditions so get a draught blowing though!
If you need something a bit harder try organic cow’s milk; mix it two parts water to milk then slap or spritz it on - if you’re vegan swap milk for vinegar.
(Always give your plant a shimmy first so any bugs have been warned and can save themselves.)
