wild mushrooms new forest

If you’re keen to try your hand at foraging in the New Forest, wild mushrooms grow throughout the year, but autumn offers the most abundant and varied seasonal eating. From late summer until the first frost, you can gather the likes of penny buns, chanterelles, field mushrooms and dozens of other varieties, many fit for the cooking pot.

The New Forest’s extensive areas of ancient woodlands are particularly rich in fungi, however, it can be found on the grassland and heathland areas as well.

There is a Fungi Collectors Code for the New Forest:

* No commercial collecting
* Obey any warning signs
* Never remove all the fungi in one area
* 1.5kg personal limit (and if you’ve found this much you’ve done well!)
* If you don’t know what it is, it may be rare – leave it alone

You can help others yourself, why not post in the "forager" section and share your revent foraging trip stories.

mushrooms in the new forest
Posted By,  john sztucki on September 20,2010
the 1.5kg limit seems a bit low, i'm dissappointed if i dont get at least 3kg in an hour or so.

Great day in the new forest today between two of us we got about 2kg mainly winter chanterel and hedgehog fungi really enjoyable

The 1.5kg limited is there for a purpose. It is so lots of people can enjoy this pasttime and not have it ruined by greedy people clearing our own countries delights for commercial purpose.

Wild Mushroom Identification - Recommended Books for All Skill Levels:
Every amateur mycologist should have a decent library of books, here are the top five books I highly recommend for wild mushroom identification:
1) Field Guide to Edible Mushrooms of Britain and Europe (Field Guides)  - Great layout with superb images - Peter Jordan
3) Mushrooms: A comprehensive guide to mushroom identification  - This one is a proper belter with loads and loads of good technical data - Roger Phillips
4) Complete Mushroom Book: The Quiet Hunt   - A lovely book by a lovely man. Antonio Carluccio
5) Mushrooms: River Cottage Handbook No.1 - Always a favourite from Hugh's fungi specialist friend, John Wright

It is important to have at least 3 books so you can cross reference and cover as many species as possible
