Hi All,

Any ideas on this. Looks like a fungus. It seems to die off when I spray it with weedol but reappears after approx 6 weeks.

Looks like Dry Rot. (The white version, not the crumbly brown one.)

Jeyes Fluid should fix it.

As far as I know, dry rot can only grow in unventilated conditions.....I've never heard of it growing outdoors.

It is living inside your dead wood, ie the timbers and the wicker fence. All you can see is the fruiting body. These fungi break down dead wood, recycling the nutrients to the soil. They are quite common, and hard to identify precisely, but will not harm living plants. You could replace the infected wood, but lingering spores may remain. The main body of the fungus is deep inside the wood, so you won't be able to kill it, as systemic fungicides rely on a plants living tissue to transport the active ingredient. I wouldn't worry too much, as it'll take years to seriously harm the railway sleepers.

H All,

Thanks for the advice.
Could this problem be living in the roots of trees which were cut down some years ago.
Regardind the Jeyes fluid. Should I dilute it or use it raw. How far from plants do I need to stay.

Thanks

Hitbit

A) Quite possibly or rather, quite probably.

B) There are dilution instructions on the tin, I think.
I wouldn't put it too near plants; just try and soak the fungi only.
And quite possibly, it'll only "control" the fungi and not eradicate it completely because fungi's little white threads can go through the soil some distance.

Hello All,
The Jeyes fluid seems to be doing a great job of suppressing the fungus. I recently heard of a very keen gardener who doses his flower beds with Jeyes every year claiming it is the best soil sterilizer. Any comments wwwuld be aprecated.

Is Jeyes' Fluid safe ? I know it's a very old product, but is it necessarily benign ? We had a neighbour years ago who used it on his paths/drives/drains ( I think ) a couple of times a year and the smell wafting over the wall was foul......I stayed indoors whenever he went on a cleaning binge.

http://www.interiorlandscaping.co.uk/PDF/Jeyes%20Fluid.PDF

If you know what you're doing (and that is not a personal statement) anything is safe. My old teacher always said "Nothing is dangerous if you know it is". Jeyes fluid as you can see from the attached PDF is a product for a job. If you really want a few hair-raisers you should see the safety spec. for petrol, diesel, table salt and household bleach not to mention fly-killer, suntan lotion or after-shave. I'd have left the poor old dry rot to it's devices. It's benign. But if Hitbit wants rid of it, Kindred is right. Jeyes Fluid is yer only man. Wear a nosebag and spray it to downwind on a breezy day. It is an excellent soil sterilizer. We used it in Winter in the home place, especially in the [dutch light] glasshouse. (I've attached a picture of a dutch light from a derelict garden nearby.) Ours was much nicer
