Hi everyone recently moved into a. New build house and we've had 2 new gardens put in ( Turf) but loads of mushrooms have grown and loads of little black flies have turned up is my turf rotten? Help please
In the sticks near Peterborough
Obviously children should be told not to eat them and to wash their hands after touching them.
Otherwise no problem at all ... in fact they’re beneficial to your garden.
The flies will feed the birds and amphibians ... working towards an ecological balance. 😊
Oh, and welcome to the forum
The harvesting, transportation and laying of new turf can cause the fungi in the soil to spore and flower (mushrooms are flowering fungi).
There's some good info here
