It appears that since there has been record rains back to 2008, everything flourished through spring and early summer. Suddenly there are some plants being hit with mold, mildew and other fungus that in some cases have caused serious or fatal results to both plants and lawn grass. How best to deal with fighting this now and for prevention in the future?

Weather related mold, mildew and fungus can be really frustrating, but you have a lot of company, and most of the problems will be gone by the end of the growing season. There are a couple of things you can do, though. Compost Tea. I love this stuff! The same compost tea you use to fertilize can be spray on foliage to battle both fungi and bacteria. Or, spray plants with a liquid seaweed. A final suggestion is Neem oil: This amazing oil does more than combat pests. It is also great for fungi and bacteria. Good luck with your garden!
