Discovered mushrooms growing in the lawn!
Looking for a plausible explanation. Could they grow from bread crumbs chucked out for the birds? [yeast- fungi]
Or is that just silly?

Often happens where there has been a tree and there is rotten wood in the soil but any high nutrient damp area and they can pop up.

thats funny because i found some in my grass yesterday and i have never seen them before,but in my case they were directly under a bird feeder which was hanging from a tree,so i am guessing that something fell out of the feeder,i had wild bird seed in it.have you been feeding your birds rudebox?

Weve never had them before either. Yes, feed the birds. Homemade fat balls.

Its not mushrooms , just toadstools. Make sure you dog does not eat them, I have had some too a few weeks ago . A neighbour a few doors away from me had them too her dog was very sick from eating them.

they will probably be

armillaria mellea

or a related species, very little can be done to eradicate them tbh. They live on dead/rotting wood and produce boot strap like underground micorhiza that are black

I had a large one growing on the safes side of my fence a couple of weeks ago. It was about the size of a cup coaster but I just mowed it up smile

Aarrr this makes sense now- sort of. We burnt logs+ twigs and put the ash on the grass as fertiliser.
