Does anyone know what the orange egg looking things is in the photo below. It is in one of my sweet peas.

Thanks, Mark

    Are the pieces completely spherical? Could it be a mould?

    Could be. It seems to have a bit of a spherical shape.

    Yes ... it’s the fruiting body of a fungus that’s breaking down the organic matter in your compost so it can be accessed by your plants. 

    Nothing to worry about 😊

    You tend to see it more in fibre pots, cardboard loo roll tubes etc.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
