Is this Honey Fungus? And, could it attack container plants?
Just moved to a new property and found a fungus growing on an old tree stump right next to an apple tree. It does look like a honey fungus but I'm not sure. It's a temporarily rented property so I'm not worried about the garden too much but I do have loads of planters with all sorts of shrubs and perennials that I will be moving with me to a new property next year. Most of them are standing on a gravel bed near the apple tree. One potted fir was standing on the lawn, right next to the stump. Should I be worried about the potted plants? There is no plastic underneath the gravel. Can the fungus infect containers? I have done a lot of online research but cannot find a single article about containers. Please help.
