Powdery Mildew Project (University of Reading)Powdery Mildew Project (University of Reading)
 Friday 31 July, 2015
 Fancy a glimpse into the world of powdery mildew? Powdery mildews commonly occur on garden plants, are unsightly, and can cause serious damage. To help understand how widespread powdery mildews are, both in terms of geography and hosts, the Royal Horticultural Society and University of Reading are working together to identify and map as many powdery mildews as possible over the next two growing seasons. You can help by supplying us with infected plant samples and in exchange we will do our best to tell you what mildew is infecting your plant.
