See the tips above and comments from our reader for help with mildew. We have also heard that spraying a milk/water solution on the leaves will help. Use about 30% milk and 70% water. It doesn't matter what kind of milk you use.
For the aphids see our pests page at www.almanac.com/content/aphids
For ants you can sprinkling cinnemon or corn meal or spraying a little bit of vinegar between the plants.
