With over 75 school groups, from all over WA, registered to participate in Mildew Mania 2017, it is great to see the variety ways that groups have organised their plants for the projects.
These are great set ups as the plants are out in the open with plenty of sunshine, rain and wind. You do want to protect your plants a little so that the wind does not damage and inhibit the plant’s growth but the wind is also helpful for spreading the local strains of powdery mildew that we are trying to ‘catch’.
Here are two of my favourites! Maybe they will inspire you for 2018?
Stay tuned for more photos…it might be featuring your school next!
