Perfect Time To Pick Mushrooms

At the moment the weather and general conditions are great for mushrooms, and this is why there is currently so many of them popping up in forests and fields throughout the UK.

Mushrooms love moist ground and mild to cool temperatures, and it doesn't take long for them to pop up - ready for you to collect them.

With eating mushrooms you need to be very careful when it comes to identification. A lot of the mushrooms or fungi that you discover in the wild won't actually be edible - so make sure you are %100 sure before picking them, let alone eating them.

The best places to find mushrooms around this time of year in the UK is in wild, wet fields or in dense forests. Some will like to grow on dead or rotting trees, others will stick to the floor of the woods and forests.

If you prefer to grow mushrooms then you may wish to have a look at this Mushroom Growing website.
