too close to powdery mildew?

chris_ont(5a Ont)July 13, 2007


I have a Sweet 100 climber growing behind a clump of Black Eyed Susans (Autumn Gold).

Today I noticed that the back of the BES has a little powdery mildew. It's leaves are almost close enough to touch the bottom of the tomato plant.

I removed some stalks/branches inbetween those two plants to let more light and air get in there.

How susceptible to PM are these tomatoes? Both plants look perfectly healthy, otherwise.

The strain of PM that affects your BES will not infest your tomatoes.
