Michealmas Daises

I have some Michalmas Daisies which have a white film over the foliage. Can anyone tell me what it is and how to get rid of it?

    Sounds like mildew -some varieties get it worse than others but they are notoriously susceptible

    You can try a spray-of 10 parts water to 1part of milk-it might work but you will have to repeat-or buy a propriety spray to treat

    I stopped growing m daisies because of mildew! Copious watering as they grow is supposed to help but am planning to use one of the varieties known not to suffer from the dreaded mildew...
