Milk and water eh? Never heard of that. What is the ratio to use? I get powdery mildew on a couple of my climbers so maybe I'll give them a shot if it appears.

Sweet Antique is lovely. A bit like Bonica in colour and form, do you think, with bigger flowers? This is Bonica below of course.
Sweet Antique has a full, large petal count and is a repeat bloomer. 3' to 4' in height with an upright form. It does look quite alot like your Bonica and can't wait to see it perform next summer.
