Now is the time to: Cut back all mildew affected phlox plants to just below the affected leaves. If the whole plant is affected, cut it down to approximately 10cm. Mildew is usually prevalent where plants are lacking water and don't have good air circulation. Whilst it won't help affected plants now, regular watering, mulching 😊 and making sure plants aren't overcrowded will help. #advice #mildew #tips

Thanks Mike, Did this last week for some of my clients, seems quite prevalent this year on many different plant species up north. But we have had hardly any sufficient rainfall in the past month. ☀️☀️💨💨
