Hello All,

I have a few blueberry shrubs (rabbit eye, brazleberry and low bush) that I keep in 5 &10 gallon containers. A friend who has several blueberry bushes suggested that I include Happy Frog Fertilizer (Acid loving plants) and more mulch to my maintenance regiment for my berry bushes. He said that it will promote a more productive and sweeter harvest next year.

Just one week later and I now have light colored mushrooms popping up in all of my berry shrub containers!?!?!

Do I just pluck them out or is this a good thing?

Confused in BK NY

Mushrooms don't do any harm to the plants. They are probably toxic, so it is a good idea to remove them. Decaying mulch when kept damp will encourage mushrooms.

I agree they won't hurt your plant but if you have small children that visit your garden it would be a good idea to remove it.
