I am pruning roses today, and in digging out a few old ones I discovered a white stringy fungus
(looked like baby roots when pulled apart). My rose garden has a layer of tan park which my gardener placed there last year when I asked him to get me an organic mulch. The fungus seems to be sitting on top of the soil, between the soil and tan bark.
While the soil is heavy clay, it has been conditioned, and lots of top soil worked in over the years. Am not certain what to do about this, but want to clear it up before the buds start really coming out. I think it might look like what I have been told in the past, oak tree fungus., but I don't have oak trees on the property, although I have lots of shade from cypress and pine trees. Actually the roses don't get all that much sun, early morning to about 2PM, then a little more late afternoon. I do grow nice roses so it seems like enuf sun.
Would love any input. Thanks, Kathleen
