The Q&A Archives: Mildew On Honeysuckle And Hydrangias

Question: Last summer I had a problem with powdery mildew on many varieties of hydrangaes and honeysuckle vines. I work at a nursery and many of these were carried over. Is there something I can treat them with in their pots now before they leaf out to minimise a problem this year with the mold? Thanks for any help. Marilee

Answer: Since you are a commercial operation, you might want to check with your county extension (652-5400). They will be able to recommend the most up-to-date controls, including those not available to home-owners. In the meantime, clean up all plant debris, avoid wetting the foliage, and provide good air circulation. Good luck!
