Death To Mushrooms

Today I’m thankful for fungicide.

I started gardening to help pollinators.  I don’t if it has technically been “organic” but I haven’t used any pesticides on my plants.  I’ve accepted a certain amount of bugs and damage because it was important to me.

I didn’t plan on mushrooms.  They’re especially bad in my rosebush.  I hate mushrooms.  I’ve been using a people- and pet-safe fungicide on the soil in an effort to get rid of them.  I can handle insects but the fungus will be hunted mercilessly.

Here are some pictures I took of other pretty flowers as mine are not photo ready at the moment.

    It’s a little sad that there are less bumble bees compared to before (I’ve only seen one of the little fellas flying around this summer), so it’s really cool you’re growing plants the natural way (despite the mushrooms).

      I agree. I had a couple of regulars earlier in the summer. I still see one now and then. I’m figuring out how to best use my patio and plantings. I want a community plot next year.

        I hope your flowers turn out great! And that the bees will visit. 🙂
