Honey Fungus

HI

Can anyone recommend any plants/bushes that are tolerant or resistant to Honey Fungus.

Does anyone know if Arum Lillies fall into this category.

Any info gratefully received.

    Hi Melanie

    This should give some useful info..

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
  • Thanks Pete

    Will give it a whirl now

    HF only affects woody plants. Arum Lilies will be fine.

  • Thanks for that info image

    And, although it is a problem, don't panic. My garden has honey fungus and thriving trees and shrubs. We have lost some aging ones, it's true, but it hasn't been the disaster I feared.

  • Thanks Posy, that's good to know. I will persevere

    we have HF. first notices years ago. It started with 2 willow, I don't know if they died of it or if it moved in afterwards. It may have killed a clematis, otherwise, nothing. An ash tree seeded right up against the dead stump and grew for about 10 years til I removed it.
