I have 2 apple trees in large containers I was keeping alive until I got a house. Its been a year now since I got them at the nursery as 5 gallon trees and planted them in containers. They are covered in what looks like apple powdery mildew. I have treated them with fruit and tree spray a few times but they don't look any better. Should I give up and throw them out? Can the mildew transfer to mynew veggie seedlings? Thanks for any help!!

Try a mix of strong garlic and onion tea. I would not use boiling water and let it sit for 2 days and them add some milk before you spray.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
