Kew Gardens: Powdery Mildew Survey

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.


Childwall Woods

Thursday 9th July: Childwall Fields Leaders – Julia Simons & Ami Weir. The Biodiverse Society Team including members of the Liverpool Botanical Society met at the southern entrance (Woolton Road) to Childwall Woods and Fields on a fine summer’s morning. Julia and Ami led us onto Childwall Fields which consist of unimproved neutral grassland on a capped landfill site surrounded by scrub, recent plantation woodland and patches of ruderal vegetation.
