Most probably nothing at all to worry about. Many types of fungi help break down woody tissues and other types survive by consuming bacteria in the mulch. Either way, fungus is beneficial so no mulch fungus treatment is necessary in most cases.

Unfortunately there is one but, that being the possibility that it is honey fungus.

More fabulous shots, Fairy.....although  I wish we could still enlarge them, to see the fine detail.

Sounds ideal, Wonky.....full sun but will tolerate partial shade is the ideal.

As a timely reminder, I would just say that sweet peas are not intended to serve as a showpiece in any garden, their sole purpose is to provide beautiful, scented, cut flowers for the house.....in fact, their straggly growth makes them quite ugly for a flower-bed display (IMHO).

I say this because many people try to use them for display reasons and this results in the flowers producing seed pods and coming to a premature end...so cut frequently and don't allow them to set seed.

I grow mine in the veg patch and am always happy to see the rows devoid of open flowers.

Your very kind, GD, but I'm certain there are much better gardeners and gardens on this forum....for me Busy Lizzies's is amazing, especially as she maintains it herself with minimal support.

During my very long gardening life I've specialised (to show standard) in just roses & sweet peas, although my true interest is in growing fruit & vegetables.

Perhaps where I come to be where I am with gardening is for another thread.
