A couple orthree years ago, uner the old apple tree which i use to prevent sea sickness, I foud a small circle of small black slimy unhealthy looking toad stools. They formed a sort of evil fairy ring, which over the next three years, grew wider and wider. This year, it seems to have exhausted itself. I found only a few remnants of the ring and now it has 'healed' itself.
I think it would be a good idea to start a new thread for this
My word I cant believe how silly people are, without these apparently menacing fungus and many many others your plants, trees, grasses wouldnt be able to survive. one of funguses main roles is as natures recyclers breaking down compounds and structures plants,micro organism ect ect can not break down, in to nutrients that are able to be taken up by plants. you will also find that alot of cases of honey fungus infection in trees is due to the fact the tree is in a state of stress or disrepair due to an outside factor for example root zone disruption, change of soil level /soil compaction,fire damage,bad pruning ect. so please dont panic and just let nature do what it has for many millions of years. maby have a closer look at fungus they are amazing, being more animal than plant they have some fantastic qualitys.
Fungae are, perhaps the most 'faskinating' things of both the plant and animal wold. They are both praised, worshiped and dreaded of 'plants', and yet produce horror if the form doesn't come to our expectations. It's like so many things, spiders and reptiles, they are apparently expressionless,and this is why we humans are frightened by fungae. It is the lack of expression in them that we cannot 'read' them.
Just take a step back and either get a good book about them, or find an expert to guide you through the first steps of fungae recognition, AND YOU COULD GET HOOKED FOR LIFE !
