Rust on gladioli - 2

DO you have a recipe for getting rid of rust on gladioli? I have used many things but nothing seems to work.


RUST is a real nuisance. If you want to spray, use Yates Super Shield, Greenguard and Fungus Fighter. Don't plant near strawberries, peas or beans (this may be because they too suffer from rust). Make sure you don't get the leaves too wet when watering, and clean corms well when lifting. You can also dust with a fungicide at this time.
