Will Powdery Mildew On Phlox Spread To Roses From Gardening Gloves

Question From: M. Rowan - Charter Township of Clinton, Michigan, United States
Q: Hi, Nancy. Is there any reason I should not use my new rose-type garden gloves to pull out perennial phlox that multiplied like crazy and is showing powdery mildew? I have to get in there to pull a lot out and the Actinovate is coming. Just didn't get to order it earlier. Thanks.

A: That PM is plant specific and will not spread to your roses. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
