lawn fungus

Posted: 27/06/2016 at 23:01

My front lawn, which incidentally has excellent drainage, is infested with toadstools, spoiling the appearance of my well kept lawn. My back lawn on clay soil has very few. Each day I remove the 40 or so toadstools from my front lawn. I admit it does seem worse after rain but then why are there so few on my back lawn which is constantly moist?

Possibly if it has pinkish white flowers with what looks like small red berries forming behind the flowers but I am not sure if they are berries or nor. Thank you.

My plant has lovely red berries and is on the kitchen windowsill. Would anyone please be so kind as to tell me if it is ok to keep it there over the Winter months?


Thank you.
