Isn't baking soda a salt? Maybe dilute it more next time.

It's ok, and I apoligigize if you thought I was making assumptions. Even though I come from a long line of farmers, I do a lot of reading on gardening. I also have binders where I keep nots on my garden and articles in others. The binders on my garden is for soil and the mixters of manure, garden soil, peat moss, ect., crop rotation and what grows best. I also have binders for my shrubs and flower beds. The most import thing when gardening is that you have fun, while doing so. the joy that one gets when they see something they planted sprout is totally awesome. Good Luck!

Yes thank you. I did research. I did not see that information. Sad I missed it but I did research it to see what to use because I lost a plant last year. I appreciate your help but am little insulted you implied I did not research it. My plants are precious to me. I may be a novice but I am learning and just because I did not see the information you are sharing please do not make assumptions thank you.

Bicarbonates: available in the form of potassium bicarbonate (Kaligreen) and home-made solutions using baking soda. Be careful to avoid injury to the plants, and note that baking soda can have adverse effects on the soil when over used. Baking soda solutions can use salad oil as a spreader-sticker, or horticultural oil (which adds eradicant capabilities

Once damage is done it pretty much is irrevesible. You can try pruning the plant babying it with tender loving care to get it going again. And before doing anything to your garden that you are unsure of always research it online or as suggested by the other members do call the registry.

You have to make sure to get rd of the visiable mildew first by using a white cloth and gently wiping the leaves or pruning the plant,


1. Make a nontoxic solution to treat mild powdery mildew. Combine 1/2 tsp. of mild liquid soap, 1 tbsp. of baking soda and 1 gallon of room-temperature water in a small garden pump

Okay thanks. I will email them. I know its what I did and not the soil. It was doing amazing even with the powdery mildew. But I know it wasn't for long with that. I need to get better airflow around it. I am planning on clearing out the vines growing up the wire fencing behind it I feel so terrible about hurting the plant. hopefully I can save it. I will rinse it today at least.

The extension office is a county office, and it is the best free resource around. You can look them up online, and possibly even e-mail a pic of the leaves. You can take them soil samples, and they'll tell you how to fix your soil in order to grow different things. If you have issues with bugs, or with blight, or with anything, they can tell you the best things to do in your local area.

I will rinse it. I wish I had time to make phone calls and all that during the week. I am just keeping up with so much right now. I was hoping to get suggestions from these wonderful gardeners on Sparkers to help. I was hoping there would be perhaps a master gardener here. Thank you for your suggestions I will definitely rinse the stuff off.

Rinse the solution off the plant with water to avoid further damage then call your local Master Gardeners or your county extention office.

Call your extension office. Take in a sample of your leaves, and they will be able to tell you what to do.

I hope someone can help. I had powdery mildew on my pumpkin plant so I used a baking soda/water mix. The problem is the leaves are now dried up and withering. I think I put too much baking soda in the mix and sprayed excessive solution on it. Does anyone have any ideas as to how to fix it? Have I killed my poor plant? Thanks!
