Hello, Margaret -- I made a special trip up to Canandaigua Lake 
(about 300 miles) to the Sonnenberg Gardens, just a few years ago, 
to investigate their special project of using milk to control the 
mildew on their roses. It was a trial instigated by Cornell Univ., 
and I went as a Master Gardener (trained by them). 

What I found was a catastrophe. Upon investigation, the bottom 
line was that all roses must be sprayed every 3 days without fail,
in order for the milk solution to have any benefit -- and this means
if it doesn't rain!  Ain't nobody around with that much time
available, apparently, to make the product work.
