Mold isn’t just found inside of the home and with the recently popular interest in gardens, it’s not at all uncommon to find mold growth destroying the buds of your plants. Whether you’re growing vegetables for consuming or flowers for their pure beauty, getting rid of mold is a top priority if you want your garden to stay fresh and beautiful!

Mold loves moisture and it doesn’t matter if it’s warm, cool shady or bright, mold will grow wherever it can find a hospitable environment. Soil is a favorite of mold and its spores because it supplies them with that just perfect environment. And when you have a use for that soil, it can become very frustrating to find fungus has claimed its territory there.

One of the best ways to kill mold growth in your garden is not with a chemical based mold and mildew remover, but with adequate air circulation instead. When you provide the right amount of airflow for your garden by keeping dead and dying leaves trimmed, you’re preventing mold from its perfect environment.

It’s also a good idea to keep gardens away from shady areas and place them where sunlight can brighten their world and destroy a fungus’s world.

And if you find any dead plants that are leftover after the summer, you should remove them since mold loves decaying vegetation.

If you find that there are molds in the soil of your garden, you should remove as much of the soil as you can and remove any mulch and replace them both with fresh soil and mulch. You may also want to keep in mind that wood mulch is the perfect breeding ground for fungus growth.

Getting rid of mold in your garden isn’t hard and with proper air circulation and some tender loving care it will be healthy again in no time.
