Sulphur is the go for mildew!

Sulphur powder on the vine leaves

I went to look for copper sulphate as I talked about in my last post but it proved to be harder to find. I did manage to get some at a local stock feed store, but along the way I found some where selling powdered sulphur.

It turns out sulphur is also good for fungal infections. So after doing some research on the Gardening Australia website I found that Bordeaux mixture is best used during winter when the plants have no leaves and that powdered sulphur can be dusted onto plants with mildew. So that’s what I’ve done. I’ll let you know how they get on.

    Hi Matt; Just discovered your blog via Blotanical. Looking
    forward to following your gardening adventures… I live in
    England, and it will be nice to follow someone whose seasons are
    the opposite to ours.

    Hi Mark, thanks for your comment. I used to live in the UK for about ten years and during that time developed a great love of gardening in England. I imagine it is a bit chilly over there at the moment to grow much. Even the broadbeans would be struggling!
