A MATTHEW SAYS This com­mon fun­gus thrives on the wood of de­cid­u­ous trees and conifers, so is busy break­ing down your mulch. Once it has ex­tracted the nu­tri­ents, it will dis­ap­pear. Try chang­ing your bark sup­plier and, if it per­sists, use larger-grade for­est bark, which is more free drain­ing.
