First remove the worst-affected parts. If herbaceous plants such as pulmonaria develop mildew after flowering, shear off all the leaves and water well. A new flush of healthy leaves should develop. With woody plants, remove the worst affected leaves and shoots. Do this slowly and carefully, putting the diseased material straight into a container, to avoid shaking spores on to healthy shoots. With annuals you may have to destroy whole plants to prevent the disease spreading. Powdery mildew loves damp, humid conditions, temperatures between 68 and 81° F (20 and 27.2° C) and shade. It’s most likely to find them on a cucumber vine’s lower leaves, where sunlight and air circulation are limited and soil moisture accumulates. Prolonged exposure to full sun and temperatures above 90°F kill the disease. Treating an Outbreak

If a cucumber has any mold on it, it is best to be safe and discard it or compost it. Do you need to store cucumbers in the fridge?

This means it is possible to see a healthy pumpkin field alongside a severely diseased cucumber field.Use drip irrigation and wide row spacing to dry the leaves and encourage good air movement around the plants. Cucumber beetle adults lay eggs near cucumber stems, and the larva begin to feed on plant roots as soon as they emerge. Adults feed on leaves and in flowers. Leaf damage appears as shot-holes or the feeding wounds may have a net-like appearance. The feeding can kill or significantly slow growth of plants. The adult beetles also transmit the bacterial wilt pathogen.

If you’ve noticed white mildew on cucumber leaves, don’t panic. While powdery mildew is an eyesore, it rarely kills plants. White spots on outdoor plant leaves does, however, put the plant under stress.
