I'm a gardening/landscaping rookie. I know nothing about nothing. lol
Doing yardwork this past weekend, I raked up a bunch of leaves and pine needles in the area where we have bushes/shrubs. There was mulch containing big wood chips and pine needles that mostly got raked up as well. Under certian sections of wood chips, the ground appeared to have some sort of white moldy stuff.
The bushes in that area were supposed to flower this past spring but didn't at all. Not one bud. We moved here last year, and the wood chip mulch was there when we moved in.
What's going on? Any ideas?
