Hi,
I live in Central Vermont. We have had a very wet summer. Just yesterday, I discovered mold on the soil in my pots and in the flower beds. I am so worried everything will die right before all my lilies and glads and poppies are about to bloom.
Does anyone have a fast-acting remedy?
Thank you so much for your help!

The mold is actually a fungus. Although pretty ugly, it won't harm you plants. You can kill it by sprinkling cinnamon on the soil surface.
