honey fungus on rose

13 October 2013 15:10:44

i was out in the garden earlier on today transplanting some roses to a new bed.

i had 6 to transplant. on digging up the last one i got a lovely mushroomy smell. then i saw the white colour on the roots....honey fungus!

i didnt know what to do so i planted it in its new bed...i think i did the wrong thing.

i know there is honey fungus on one side of the garden for a few years but this was the first time i saw it on this side. i didnt take a photo to show you.

so i have two questions:

did i do the right thing planting it

can i do anything to get rid of the problem long term

Alan, I think you should not have planted it. As far as I know there is no real cure for it, and getting rid of effected plant is the best answer.

I'm no expect so maybe wait what others say or see what you can find out about it on Google.
