I noticed that in one of my winter sown jugs there appears to be some white mildew growing on top in a few spots. I planted jewel weed in them which I hope to have growing along a moist shaded area of my back yard. Does mildew on the top of the soil mean doom to all of the seeds I planted in it? Any tips on how to get rid of the mildew without messing the seeds up? It looks like there are a handful of patches 3/4 inch in diameter...should i just try to skim that soil off of the top? Any suggestions/past experiences are appreciated!
I also notice a lil bit... they are on big yogurt buckets... i bet all the snow melted into the slits, and it just got too wet. I took all the lids off today... think it rained a bit but i think with the lids off, they should be OK, as they can breathe.
