Those who have been following my mildew saga will know I had come down in favour of using sulphur to try to control it. Unfortunately that didn’t have the effect I was hoping (in fact it seemed to make no difference at all). And it was starting to spread into the second vine I have. So despite the advice I came across I decided to use copper sulphate in a Bordeaux mixture. The good news is it seems to have checked the problem. And even better the vines are sprouting new leaves so they will at least build some reserves for winter. Next year we might get some good grape crops. Here’s hoping!
