Wild mushroom season

If you’re new to wild mushrooms, the best way to learn the ropes is to go foraging with an experienced group. Fungus.org.uk has a list of links to local groups who organise forays into the wild. There’s also a forum on Wild Mushrooms Online for connecting with fungus enthusiasts in your area, as well as an extensive well-illustrated section about different edible species (such as the Morels pictured above). But the sheer fascinating proliferation of fungi means a guidebook or web page are never enough, as the best ones will warn you. It’s never that clear-cut out in the field.
