Q.Can I Get Rid Of Fungi?

2 years ago I covered a tree stump with a rockery. Now I am starting to get fungi growing amongst some plants. Could this be coming from decaying tree stump and is it treatable?

Unfortunately, your photo did not come through.

It sounds like nature is taking its course, as it should. The best course of action will depend on the fungus in question. Many will be beneficial in the situation, breaking down the stump into nutrients for the plants in the area. Some fungi can be detrimental to plant health, so it will be important to know, exactly, which fungus is present.

Treatment will depend on the fungi in question.
