Garden guru Paul Plant said there’s humidity, rainfall and heat which is the perfect mix.

“It’s the perfect temperature, the rainfall, the conditions,” he told Bill McDonald.

“Mushrooms live on the basis that they they help and facilitate the breakdown of organic matter, with this heat, this humidity, this rainfall, it’s in the perfect conditions for these mushies to show off what they do best, which is the flowering body.

“It’s absolutely fantastic to see the diversity of mushrooms popping up in people’s gardens at the moment.”
