Hi, I have some sort of fungus which leaves white cluster underneath the leaves in my garden. It's been raining a lot, which I'm sure doesn't help the situation... The only reason I noticed was because the tops of the leaves yellow in coordination with the fungus on the bottom. I'll post a photo in a minute. Help?! Embarassed

As I look at it, it looks like regular powdery mildew, which has been growing for a while there. The high humidity is the probable cause of this issue, but in order to save these plants immediate action needs to be taken. The powdery mildew slowly eats through the leafs, but the growth can be stopped in various ways. This article - www.growingagreenerwor...ry-mildew/ describes various things you can try. I've tested most of the natural remedies, and they actually work. And if there's no results in a couple of days, you should probably consider hiring a company to help you. Most professionals use various specialised mixtures and methods to remove the mildew without endangering the plants. One company I've encountered are these guys - www.gardeners-melbourn...intenance/ . Their garden maintenance service is pretty great and covers everything, including pests and plant diseases.

Hi,
The photographs you show are a bit indistinct. Any chance of getting in a bit closer to be able to identify this a bit better? From first glance it looks more like an insect pest than mildew. Maybe a type of scale insect as they lie along the veins of the leaf. Mildew would cover the whole leaf in a different way and can be gently rubbed off with your thumb as they normally invade the surface of the leaf and penetrate through the leaf stomata (leaf holes through which they "breath").
If it is a scale then a spray of a light mineral oil should help kill it by smothering the insect and suffocating it. As this treatment relies on contact action to work, it is important to thoroughly wet the insect, so you have to spray upwards onto the undersurface of the leaves or it won't work. The insect will generally remain on the leaf as its mouthparts are imbedded in the leaf itself. But they will be dead, so don't worry.
Try to get a better photo so I can confirm what I think it is please.
Hope this helps. Duncan

Just had another thought. What vegetables are being attacked by this pathogen? If it just your brassicas (cabbages, cauliflowers, broccoli etc) it might be white blister rust (Albugo candida) A close up would help me see better. No sprays for this if it is I'm afraid, also you need to bury the plants or burn them as the spores of this fungus can remain in the soil and infect brassicas next year. Cheers, Duncan
