    I have never used that particular brand, but have mixed fungicide with fertilizer when watering and feeding late in the day. It will keep your plants from rotting if they stay wet overnight. I highly recommend watering early in the day so that they can dry out though.

    Cheers,

    well here it is up to the whims of Mother Nature when they get watered....this particular fungicide is systemic rather than just preventative (so curative also). And was wondering if it can be mixed with fertilizers...

    Thanks. Guess I will just try.
