Hello, Every year I get these in my garden, can you please help me to identify what this is? My wife thought it was slugs and have put slug pellets down. Regards, Karl Smith
That is lawn star jelly fungus. A very natural, and healthy part of your lawn's ecosystem. Those pellets will not remove the growth. You can remove it with wettable sulfur and copper fungicide temporarily, but it will always come back. Wettable sulfur can also help keep them away for a little while, but again, it will always come back at some point.
These are doing no damage to your lawn, but are breaking down potential infections before they happen. but it is unsightly, and I understand if you did want to get rid of them.
Hello I have this mold-looking stuff in my greenhouse. I had this last year too and I have treated the soil with Basamid and diluted formol without any results. Can you offer any advice. Thanks, Andreea
This is common, and will come back on several occasions. This can be controlled, quite easily, with peroxide. Pour it directly on the areas, and it will resolve very quickly.
My partner cut up sheets of compressed fc cresting clouds of dust all over vegetables not to mention the obvious danger to his own lungs. Is this toxic on the vegetables and in the soil.?
If you are talking about Fiber Concrete, then it is possible that the soil is toxic depending on the exact fibers used to make it. There are many different mixes.
I would have your local extension service take a soil sample to see if there are any contaminants that would make it unusable.

excessive amount. I used an amount suitable for 10,000 square ft. Is it safe to plant vegetables or is the soil contaminated now? I’m worried that I contaminated the soil. We haven’t planed anything yet. Should I dig out the soil and start over? Thank you, Ari
Although this chemical is not restricted to the public, my opinion is that it should be controlled pretty tightly.
This chemical carries a substantial risk to marine life and waterways, if instructions aren't followed very carefully.
Unfortunately, this one may be something that your local extension service needs to handle, as this is not a situation to be taken lightly in such concentrations.

ct eria in the garden hose might have contaminated the garden?
There is, certainly, more than just a concern of contamination. There is a guarantee that some dangerous bacteria have been introduced to the garden!
This article pertains to sterilizing soil after pet poop has been in contact with soil. This, alone, is a concern. However, human feces greatly increases the odds that a highly infectious disease will be transferred to the area. This makes sterilization more important. Here is an article that will help:

I repoted it several months ago. It started having black specks and leaves started to fall. Trimmed all off. They grew back and started all over again. I have had them 10 years..no problems
Unfortunately, repotting will not solve the infection. Each time it is repotted, the infection will be transferred to the new soil.
Treatment will be necessary.

My plant always has 2 healthy red flowers on it. It flowers every 3 months or so. When a new flower starts to unfold, one of the existing ones behind to die - the yellow stem goes black. Is there a reason for this? Can it not support more than 2 flowers? Thanks
Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. This will depend on the, exact, plant in question and how the die-off appears.
Black stems can, often, indicate infection. A fungicide might be necessary.

It seems odd that it only occurs as a new flower is unfolding. It's as if the plant can only sustain 2 flowers at a time. I don't think I can add attachments? Thanks Laura Louise
