We are new gardeners. Ro and I planted 3 garlic cloves in pot and it seemed like they sprouted up immediately. About 3 weeks later I noticed 3 grey wimpy looking mushrooms had sprouted at the base of one of the garlic plants. We removed the mushrooms but not the soil.
Ro did some internet research and found something about cornmeal being a natural antifungas whatever. So, we sprinkled that on the top and it has been working is way into the soil every time we water, and things have been fine for about two weeks.
Then, today, I found a new mushroom at the very edge of the pot.
Here are my questions:
1. Will the garlic be edible or should we throw the whole thing out?
2. Can we get rid of the mushrooms and the garlic be ok?
3. How do we get rid of the mushrooms?
4. Also, we water it everyday, is that too often?
