I have common Earthball Fungus abundant on my Vegetable Garden. Is this a problem with the soil and any ideas how to get rid of it ? Thanks



Hi Guest,

Actually, Earthball fungi are very good to have in a garden and work with woody plants in a mutually beneficial / symbiotic way where the fungi make nutrients available to the roots of plants. So, no, not a problem at all, and shouldn't be got rid of. The presence of large numbers in a vegetable garden might be an indication that either the site, or the soil/compost used on the site, is rich with woody plant material.
