Powdery Mildew and Aphids

Well I had a few issues awhile back i consulted the www about, and the first solutions I came across “seem” to be working. Yay!

First it was the aphid infestation:

Brussel Sprouts and Aphids

I applied a recipe of:
1/2 litre of water,
tsp of crushed chillie
1/2 tsp of dish detergent
Grapeseed oil
Strained so the crushed chillie bits didn’t clog up sprayer..

And Voila! 3 days/ 3 sprays later!

Aphid Infestation receding
Still some aphids but nowhere near as bad! (I also planted a tansy in there.. aphids hate that stuff I have heard)

Grapes: The Powdery Mildew


I applied:
1/2 litre of water
1 tsp of baking soda
1/2 tsp of dish detergent

3 sprays / 3 days later :
Grapes : Powdery mildew vanishing...
Powdery mildew seems to be going, to reveal brown splotches.. bugger… will have to wait and see.
