In autumn you may see toadstools growing in the leaf litter or bracket fungus growing on tree stumps.
But tell a child not to pick and eat toadstools found in a woodland is quite another matter.
A ring of small toadstools of Marasmius (right) develops near the killing zone in autumn.
This fungus produces white toadstools in clusters, normally high up on the stem.
Clusters of honey-coloured toadstools appear close to dying trees or shrubs in late summer or autumn.
