Fungal infections

Can affect plants in areas with poor air circulation and humid conditions, particularly in late summer and autumn.

Infections can include Downy Mildew or Powdery Mildew. The first symptom of a fungal infection is a white or grey film or spots appearing on the plants leaves.

If you see anything like that, remove the affected leaves and spray the plant weekly with a milk and baking soda spray.
