When can I spray Daconil?

sue_ct(z6 CT)July 3, 2012

I have noticed some fungal disease on lower leaves and am concerned since it is really early in the year for me to be seeing problems. I really want to start Daconil soon but It is forecast to be in the upper 80s to mid 90s for a week and Daconil says not to spray when it is "during extremely hot and sunny weather". I don't want to cause more damage. Can I spray in late afternoon when the garden is in shade or do I have to wait until the heat wave goes away? That might be a while.

You can spray in the evening when the sun starts to go down.

I spray once a week no matter what the daytime highs are. I sometimes spray early in the morning as my plants get no direct sun until just before noon.

You never want to spray during hot direct sunshine.

Agree. Early AM. Never in the direct sun and never in the heat of the day.

Thanks, Guys. Won't spray in the heat of the day, but will do it this evening. I like to sleep a little later on my days off. :)
