"I noticed white mold in my compost pile but now it's spreading into my garden soil.
I don't want to use sprays or chemicals but how else can I get rid of it? Help!"

The white mold in your compost and garden is something to treasure. It means that microbes are working their magic to insure a healthy garden and gorgeous plants. Leave it alone.
Think of the white mold as yogurt for the garden. Just like the yogurt we eat for the beneficial bacteria it produces in our bodies, your garden thrives on the beneficial bacteria that live (and grow) in your soil.
White mold is a sign that your garden soil is healthy. The mold helps your plants absorb nutrients from the soil.

We use Bio-tone Starter Plus when we transplant. We put a sprinkle (or a small spoonful depending on the size of the plant) into the hole along with some of our rich, home made compost. We feel adding a shot of bacteria to the soil helps prevent transplant loss by jump starting the roots to take up nutrients.

Seeing white mold in your compost or in your garden soil is something to celebrate. Life is a magical eco-system of things you can see and things you can't but they all work together.
