fungi on garden logs

United Kingdom Gb

I have a white deposit which looks and smells like mushrooms on the ornamental wooden logs in my garden. I have scrapped it out but wondered if anyone knows what I can treat it with to stop it returning.



Without a picture it is hard to tell what sort of fungi it is. Does it really offend you? I think it is just part of autumn. There is however one called honey fungus which will run riot in your garden if left and kill many plants. ( I am sure yours is not it though as true to its name it is honey coloured) There is a chemical you can buy called amillatox (or something like that) you can use but it is very expensive. I would not use it unless it was against an agressive fungii like honeyfungus. If you don't like them I suggest you carry on scraping them off until they give up.
