Gardening with Milk

Use it to replace expensive store-bought pesticides to treat powdery mildew on your plants and veges!
  • Make a solution of one part skim milk to nine parts water and spray it thoroughly on your plants weekly until mildew is gone.
  • There is an added bonus of the milk acting as a foliar fertilizer boosting the plant's immune system due to the amino acids found in the milk!
  • This treatment has been found so effective that New Zealand vintners are beginning experiments using milk to treat their grape vines!
Wagner Bettiol's original article was published in the journal Crop Science (Vol. 18, 1999, pp. 489-92).
