Re: Fungi in compost

No, as I said, they appeared some with caps and were gone within minutes of me taking the lid off the seed tray. These photos were the best I could do with the macro on my camera - I even tried taking a photo through a magnifying glass. They stopped appearing when the sunflower seed started to devel...

Rust or eggs

I had taken this photo to get ID on the fly and noticed the orange spots on the petals of the cuckoo flower. Is it a rust? Had various suggestion - pollen, too regular and round - eggs, not like an insect would lay eggs on petals which are short lived. Someone suggested maybe a rust. The problem wit...

Re: What is this tree?

I think it could be a prunus (cherry tree), especially as it seems to be in a town, therefore planted by the council

Re: Identification Request for Fungus in Grass

I must have had a senior moment as I did not bring one back with me. So dashed out to collect one to test spores. All gone! Sheep were obviously chomping at the grass and trampled the fungi - just shrivelled up bits left. Still at least I know it is a Inocybe. Something not had here as yet. If more ...

Years ago I did a website with an unfortunate name, search engines bought up pages of undesirable websites. Chatted with other web developers and they suggest the above, as searches...

Fungi in compost

Cannot give a better photo, as had to take on full macro, then zoom the photo, but this is more of a question. Planted some seeds in bought general compost. These miniscule (size of a pin head) fungi seem to appear over night, and are gone before 11am (very short life cycle). a) never seen anything ...
