In Australia, what is the best Eco-friendly spray to use for control of fungal diseases in the home garden?

There are several eco-friendly sprays that you can use to control fungal diseases in your home garden in Australia. Here are some options:

  1. Eco-fungicide: eco-fungicide is readily available and very effective. It is available as powder for mixing or a pre-mixed  liquid.
  2. Baking soda spray: Baking soda is a natural antifungal agent that can be effective in controlling a range of fungal diseases, including powdery mildew and black spot. You can make a baking soda spray by mixing 1 teaspoon of baking soda with 1 quart of water and a few drops of dish soap. Spray the mixture on the affected plants.
  3. Milk spray: Milk contains compounds that can help to control fungal diseases, including powdery mildew. You can make a milk spray by mixing 1 part milk with 2 parts water and spraying it on your plants.

When using any type of spray, be sure to follow the instructions carefully and apply it only to the affected plants. It’s also a good idea to test the spray on a small area first to ensure that it doesn’t harm your plants. NB. Always ask your local Garden Centre for their advice before buying a spray.

If you have any queries, please contact your local Independent Garden Centre.
