Powdery Mildew

Unfortunately, a fungal disease attacked the honeysuckle that climbs the terrace fence. I haven't noticed it until some days ago, and it seems that it spreads rapidly. Being do severely affected, I think I am going to remove the whole plant by cutting it down to the ground. It grows rather quickly, and I only hope the new growth would be healthy. 

So it is in the garden, some plants grow healthy and vigorously, the other decline. Astrantia 'Shaggy' is very beautiful this year. 


  1. One of our lupins is suffering badly from mildew.

  2. Each year both the squash and cucumbers get bad cases of powdery mildew; the only saving grace is that they usually produce a good crop before they totally succumb. Well, the cucumbers do anyhow - I'm still working on getting halfway decent sized squash plants & a good harvest.
