|We planted dwarf alberts spruce trees. We used
garden soil and then added
decorative bark. Now we are seeing mushrooms and they seem to be growing rapidly. What can we do about this?
|The mushrooms are growing from the partially decomposed matter in the mulch beneath the spruces. Rake them out of the mulch and toss them in the trash. To keep additional mushrooms from growing, periodically rake through the mulch to incorporate fresh air. As the mulch ages and begins to dry out, no new mushrooms will sprout. Although it is unattractive to look at, the mushroom growth is perfectly natural and will stop soon. Just rake through the mulch once in a while and that should solve the problem.|
