why has my belgica [honeysuckle] got white powder on the leaves, and twiggy stems



Mildew! Usually a sign of extreme dryness at the roots. Give it a really good soaking and spray with 9 parts water to 1 part whole milk.

Bamboo do you know why goats milk won't do?

Dunno - no one really knows for sure why cow's milk works, they think its something to do with the lactic acid.
