White Fungus on fibre pots

Posted: 26/03/2017 at 13:03

As far as I'm aware, unless someone has an extreme susceptibility/allergy there should be absolutely no problems.

 My OH has a tendency to asthma triggered by cats and strongly scented flowers, but has never shown any problems when we have lots of sweet pea seedlings etc in fibre pots (complete with white fungus) on the windowsills.

Just back from the GC with a car boot full of big bags of 'soil conditioner' and a small one of MPC, a ball of twine, some birthday cards ........................................................ and two pulmonaria      Opal and EB Anderson 

It's those dratted sticky labels again ...................

As Bob has said, perfectly normal - it's these fungi that help to break down the pot when you plant your seedlings out in the bed.

MU  I love to lie on the lawn on warm evenings and the bats swoop low over me - I think the gnats are attracted to me () and the bats are after the gnats. OH says the bats are sometimes within an inch or so of my face -  I can sometimes feel the 'rush of air' from their wings.

Glad it's been a good day Pat 

Time for you to sit down for the evening and put your feet up?

Bats? Lovely   We haven't seen 'ours' yet ... They live in an old chalk mine a few hundred yards from here (now an SSSI) and fly over us on their way to the marshes in the evening, and on summer evenings we watch them hunting the cockchafers that gather around our ash tree ... Magical!  

Hope everyone had a good night and is getting a bit of a lie in
