oops, another question about Greencure

I used Bayer Disease control twice, The last time was about 3 weeks ago (for BS) It worked, but It was hard on the babies, it spotted the leaves and canes. This is why I don't want to use it on PM when something less 'rigorous' will work.

Now, , , how long should I wait to use the Greencure?

Don't scream. And thanks for your patience.

No problem at this distance in time, if ever.

This is the first time I've heard of spray damage from Bayer. Be sure to measure accurately, swirl to mix, and irrigate if needed before spraying. I have sprayed Bayer in the hot sun with no issues.

As michael said, if you follow the instructions on the label, you should not get any damage from Bayer. Disease Control. Are you sure you weren't using Bayer All-in-One?

As for Green Cure, it is a specific for powdery mildew. It only cures a current infection - it has no residual effect - it may have to be repeated in accordance with the label as long as conditions are favorable for PM, It has no effect at all on other diseases, so black spot may show up if the roses are susceptible to it..

You don't have to wait any longer to use Green Cure - you can use it now.

Could it have been the spinosad I sprayed for bugs? It's called Captain Jack's Dead Bug Brew....Maybe that's the one that gave my babies the spots.

And by the way, Michael, I am a very careful cook, bread maker, and cheese maker. I always mix carefully!!! (Actually, I'm compulsively careful.) All true, but said in a silly manner as I am want to do!

Could it be the bug stuff?

Spinosad is not supposed to burn, either, but I have only a little personal experience with it. I haven't used any insecticide for years. Generally, it is "organic" stuff that is most likely to burn foliage (oils, soap, detergent, sulfur, copper, baking soda, Wilt Pruf; also household chemicals such as vinegar, bleach, peroxide).

Well, I haven't seen a bug since I used that stuff. I also used the Dr. Earth bug stuff. Maybe this was the culprit.

Thanks again,

Spinosad will spot your blooms and foliage. I got it for thrip control. It caused more damage than the thrip did!

Does anyone know where or if Green Cure can be purchased in Canada? Thank you.

Cadence, you can read labels and look for the active ingredient potassium bicarbonate. It is sold under many names in the USA. I'm sure it is available in Canada, as it is no more hazardous than baking soda.

Spinosad can spot leaves...
Both of our Carefree Sunshine roses were spotted by spinosad...
Always do spot testing before applying to entire rose bush...
