Re: New Kitten Photo Added

We're very humid here most of the time, but I don't spray. I just plant what doesn't need it. 'Robert Poore' phlox rarely gets mildew, nor does 'David'. If they do, I just whack 'em back and they flush with better blooms anyway.

I grow 'Profusion' Zinnias if I grow Zinnias at all. Rosa mutabilis gets black spot, but I ignore it. 'Robin Hood' rarely gets black spot, and 'Knockout' is incredibly clean. 'Marie Pavie' and 'Katherine Zeimet' get some, but not to any great degree. I just pick up the bad leaves.
I actually bought a new organic spray, but have been too lazy to do anything with it. ;-)

85 degrees is pushing it, but I do the ones out back last and it's cooler
back there before noon.  This is blackspot country, big time.  It's humid
here because of the proximity of Cedar Creek Lake regardless of drought.
Also spray the phlox and zinnias to prevent powdery mildew.
