Re: Immunox

Kitty, I use milk on my roses, and never notice any residue. The only ones I 
are miniatures in containers around the breezeway.  Gave up on other roses
years ago because of the deer.  Every week when we grocery shop we get a 
gallon of milk.  There will be about two inches left in the previous week's 
We fill that with water and just pour it over all the containers.  Haven't 
black spot or mildew or any other such problems since I started this a couple
of years ago.  May not be scientific, but it seems to work.  I use milk on my
face for a lotion, too, since I am so allergic to any commercial product.

I've heard about using milk and just now looked into it more. This would
be a protectant and we do plan to start early with this. However, I have
one concern. It's milk, yes only 10-30% milk, but doesn't it leave a
residue on the leaves? I know PM looks worse, but plants for sale
shouldn't have a white film on the leaves
