Cuts or unscrews?

It has long been researched whether fungi suffer from wrong harvesting. Some experts recommend that you turn mushrooms out, as this keeps the fruit body, others cut off.

The only factor for her many appearances is the weather.

The wet weather is a great prerequisite for the appearance of many types of mushrooms. Do not be a barbarian!
