Mushroom Magic

Artist collaboration

Fungi are beautiful, mysterious and ephemeral but historically have had a bad press as they are often associated with poisoning and witchcraft etc. But without them life on earth could not exist, as they perform an essential role in recycling and decomposing the planet’s organic waste products. Fungi live in a kingdom of their own, separate from plants and animals although they have much more in common with the latter.

Look out for some very unusual mushrooms as they start to appear in the Rock Garden in March.
