Non-toxic sprays for fungal diseases
Roses and other plants
Mildew is a fungal
disease that looks as if the leaves have been coated with powder. It
usually thrives in damp, shady places.
Powdery mildew can
often be cured by making an organic spray consisting of 1 cup of fat
free milk and 4 cups of water. Spray this onto the affected leaves on
a sunny day. Apparently the sun interacts with this organic spray to
make it more effective.
Garlic has certain
antifungal and antibiotic properties.
To make an effective
garlic spray, use the food processor to liquidise about 10 garlic
cloves with about a litre of water. Strain the liquid and let it
stand for a day or two so that the water absorbs the garlic. Spray the
affected leaves with the mixture.
