Mulch Fungus

Is there fungus in your mulch? The answer is there is likely some in any organic mulch. Fungus is a part of it, especially if it is something natural like wood chips, leaf mulch, or compost mulch. There are a couple of ways to get rid of it, and some are not harmful.

Lilac Bushes

Lilac bushes have been blooming for the last couple of weeks, and the blooms smell wonderful. Lilac bushes are good to plant in spring or in fall for best results. If you plant multiple bushes try to spread them at least 5 feet apart. They are great as yard border plants because some varieties grow large and can give your yard privacy from neighbors while also looking and smelling great in the spring when they bloom. There are also lilac trees if you like the flowers but do not want a bush, and lilacs come in multiple shades of pinks and purples, as well as white and yellow. Lilac bushes are pretty low maintenance; they just need regular watering and seasonal pruning. They do not need frequent fertilizing, but some fertilizer that is not too high in nitrogen in the early spring will give the blooms an extra boost.
