small trees

my son is growing small trees in the garden,one of them,an oak i think has a white deposit on the leaves.i am really in the dark here,any ideas?do i need to do anything?help!

Probably mildew - a photo would help. Love Lizzie


sorry,my pic wont upload,if it is,what can i do?thank you

mildew common causes -warm damp conditions and overcrowding

remedy purchase a fungicidal check that it is suitable for your plants
or try first spray with a weak solution of washing up liquid

I think its weather related too. I also think you might as well leave it as it wont damage the tree long term. You can buy fungicidal washes but its a bit late to be of any use this year. Love Lizzie
