doesn't powdery mildew is usually show up during
the hot and dry periods? for me that is later in
the season and some years it doesn't happen much at
all. seems to hit the bee balm and some false
sunflowers the worst, but they seem to survive
anyways so i've not done much to fight it.
i don't know what "sky water" means, but i'd
assume you mean watering from overhead? for that
i'd not water in the evening, but instead in the
morning so that the water can evaporate from the
leaves as quickly as possible.
You got it right. I meant water falling from above.
Basically, me standing there with a fancy hose nozzle
set on "Shower".
I realize at some point, I have to switch to soaking
I got white power mildew something awful. I have presumed
it was from mist from the law sprinklers. This year
I am letting the law die, so no mist.
when skimming i thought you meant rain, but after
i reread it...
actually, my comment about "during hot and dry"
periods is wrong, so i would assume your letting
the lawn go is going to help, yes.
if you have trouble getting the water to not
hit the leaves get a longer extension for the hose
which will let you direct the water better without
having to bend over.
My zukes always die off from white power mildew. I think it
is from the mist from the lawn sprinklers, but I am not
sure. I will find out the season as I am not watering the
lawn anymore. I am a bit paranoid, black thumb and all.
