I am just starting to look for morels this year. Has anyone seen any yet? Also, as I can get to the New Forest relatively easily, I was wondering if it was worth it to get morels? Any views? More questions than answers!

Thank-you

HI, I live in the forest and keen to start a new hobby and love the idea to forage for Mushrooms but know nothing about them - do you know any "experts in the area" I could contact?
Would be really greatful!

Hi Laura,

Mrs Tee, in Lymington is the person you want. Google her website. She runs courses and conducts forays, and also sells mushrooms in case you don't find any! Good time to get started.

Best of luck

Hi Laura
Linda is spot on with her recommendation. Myself and a friend attended a Mrs Tee course last autumn and it was great. Excellent talk and a great lunch followed by some fantastic foraging in the forest. Highly recommended.

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
