New gardener, found my peace among the flowers, birds and insects in my garden... and discovered a new passion. Strong supporter of organic gardening.

Trying cucumber again. This time it will remain in the greenhouse, FAR away from slugs.

#help The organic compost that I used had some white fungus looking bits on it but I wasn’t sure if that was ok or not. This morning my propagators are covered in the white fungus. This doesn’t look good at all. Ideas? What can I do? Have you come across this before?

Maybe give it some fresh air?

Fresh air as Ange says and sprinkle some cinnamon over it 👍🏼

@anges @sieveheadsarah Thank you both! Should I uncover the propagator entirely or simply allow some air to enter at the top through the air hatch?

I’d take the cover off, I’d also email the company that makes it and ask them why this has happened 👍🏼
