Growing Rosemary

I need some advice re treatment of mildew (white film) on my rosemary leaves I planted them in pots on a north facing balcony, they are probably 3 months old, so far they have been doing great but up until 1 week ago I noticed this whitish film/ or cotton-like covering some leaves, can anyone suggest any treatment?? I've read so many different things on different forums I just want to get a better plan of action Thanks Andrew

Sounds like mites, spray with pyrethrum or white oil and water them less if it is mildew. Rosemary likes a semi arid environment. white oil should help with insects and mildew somewhat or even try olive oil sprayed on it lightly
