My neighbor has a medium sized tree right against our common fence that had a bad case of powdery mildew, so he decided to cut it down today. We have plants on the other side of the fence, and a lot of the powder was in the air, and a few of the branches fell on our side of the fence, spreading even more of it.
Should I be worried about effects on other plants? We don't have the same tree, but we have a lot of other trees and veggies, including a Goji plant that gets something similar.
Also, is it dangerous to be around the powder? We both wore masks while he was cutting it. I sprayed the area with water to wash it off the fence and plants - hopefully that was OK. Our weather has been sunny and hot lately, if that matters.
Thanks for any help or suggestions.
