 Just for future ref Pat, the white stuff on top of the last pick is called snow. It tends to come with low temps and energy bill price rices.

 I think you missed the pun Pat. " I'll be out by spring"  Sorry.

How do I rejuvenate a lawn?

I thought, I was wrong with you, reading the first bit of your reply. I understand now.

You know exactly what to do.

You are now overwhelmed with gardening or lazy? What is it ? 

Kind regards

Don't worry Edd, we had no intention to eat the fungus, although we enjoyed looking at the formations.  However, for a park that is full of children should it be encouraged to grow?

See original post

Try and stop it Guernsey Donkey2. Its there to be eaten.

Sorry. I got wrong for this before.

Please do not eat any mushrooms or fungi as Laetiporus sulphureus can harm certain people as it is a natural source of vitamin D and you might overdose if eaten in the wrong quantities.

This applies to any mushroom. Never put them in the sun and dry them for vitamin D use during winter months.

Difficult to see what the fungus is but I would take a guess at. 

Dacrymyces palmatus. Orange Jelly Fungus, Witch’s Butter. I would like to think it was the start of Chicken of the woods (very edible) but it does not look right and I would need a closer pick.

The other is a bracket fungus (or shelf fungi) perhaps rainbow if you are lucky but it could be any comprised bracket as there are numerous species of the Polypore Family.

It's a very old method of covering the soil and building it up to stop weeds (with mulch or layers) and let the worms do the work. You obviously can't walk over the set area but it does work a treat and greatly reduces any digging in the spring.

I do not understand as my onions are usually 6lbs and over!!! I dare not tell you the size of my daffs bulbs.

Especially, this time of year as I'm a qualified daff plucker.

"Lycorine is a toxic crystalline alkaloid found in several plant species, such as the bush lily (Clivia miniata), Lycoris, and Narcissus. It may be highly poisonous, if not lethal, when ingested in certain quantities. Symptoms of lycorine toxicity are vomiting, diarrhea, and convulsions. Regardless, it is sometimes used medicinally, a reason why some groups may harvest the very popular Clivia miniata. 

It inhibits protein synthesis, and may inhibit ascorbic acid biosynthesis, although studies on the latter are controversial and inconclusive. Presently, it serves some interest in the study of certain yeasts, the principal organism on which lycorine is tested. 

Lycorine is also found in daffodil bulbs which are often confused with onions, thereby leading to incidents of accidental poisoning."
