|I have a pile of woodchips I aged over winter, now I have moldy layers. Will this hurt my flowers? I would like to put it around the plants as a mulch.
|The mycelium (white stringy stuff) in your woodchips is part of the natural decompostion process. As long as you use the chips as above-ground mulch on annuals and perennials, there should be no problem. The mycelium will dry up when exposed to sunlight and air. Just as a precaution, don't put the mulch up around the bases of woody plants, or close enough to touch the trunks of trees.
