Every time I plant peas of any kind, I get a white powder on them. Is that powdery mildew?
My concern is that the mildew will "jump onto" my other plants.
Is that possible?

I've got some snow peas going and they do seem to have a powdery sheen. I'm not convinced that this is PM or that it is even a problem. If the plants are growing, flowering or setting pods, I think we're both OK. Mine have climbed up to about 5.5' and are starting to flower.

According to my calculations, the problem doesn't exist.

All the various powdery mildew speices are host specific...so no the likely hood that PM on peas transfering over to tomatoes, ect. is not going to happen [Big Grin]
Here is some more info for you, good luck [Big Grin]
