Signs of damage

How to prevent
Constantly remove dead parts of plants, which are dangerous factors of fungal diseases. Carry out proper watering of plants at home without wetting the leaves, flowers, and fruits. Avoid excessive moisture, especially in warm weather and heat.
There are many ways to deal with gray mold. Mold on flowers is usually easier to remove than garden fungus.

We recommend using a Bordeaux mixture in this case.
