Is this Honey Fungus?

Posted: 02/11/2014 at 10:29

It's the time of year for fungi Matt. They're part of life's rich tapestry.  Spores are tiny and spread unseen in the air. Most are harmless, a few are harmful, the majority are beneficial.

I think this book may have been revised since my copy.

An excellent ID book for all things fungal

No, it's not. 

But it's still not a good sign. Healthy trees don't grow fungi

I'd enjoy it now. It's an annual and won't survive the winter. Pull it up when the frost had finished it off. If it's made any seed you could collect some for next year

If you like a well written book, Christopher Lloyd is (was) your man.

I like a book I can read, the internet is good for information but not for a good read.

As far as I know freesias aren't hardy outside in the UK.

no teapot, I can thank ad blocker for that

Enlarging a pond

I did go out. I've crippled my back again it all took ages

Yes, the bottom of a pond is full of interesting things. Perhaps you could bale (bail?) it out into some other containers for the duration of the job.

Great idea, making a bigger pond

Always read the label!
