Friend or for?

Hello There are little mushrooms growing in my greenhouse bed. I'm hoping this isn't a bad thing! Not sure whether to dig them in, pull them out or remove all of the soil! Any advice much appreciated. I WON'T be frying them for breakfast that's for sure!

Hi lilylouise, wow your greenhouse setup sounds fabulous! Lucky you for winning one! Do you end up with a lot of lovely produce? Has your largest one got beds inside? Do you change the soil very often or can you get by with adding nutrients and feed to it? Hope you don't mind all the questions.

Hope you've warmed up bunnysgarden. It was an exotic -4 where I live!

It's great fun isn't it? I used to spend weekends shopping and pottering aimlessly. Now I can't wait to grow stuff! Lots of trial and error. I hope you have lots of success bunnysgarden. Got a favourite plant yet?

Thanks sooooo much for the advice folks.

I am warned bunnysgarden! Am still a novice and can't hold my water - I'd be out there now if it wasn't for an early start for work tomorrow!

Thanks sotongeoff. I'll hold fire and perhaps just buy some seeds for now. Heck, I planted some kohl rabi seeds and they are up too! Luckily there are lots of seeds in the packet so enough to take-two when it is warmer.
