These little fungi have started growing in a pot of strawberry plants! Can anyone id them, please? And are they likely to affect the strawberries in any way?! Don't know if they've sprouted from the compost (peat-free) or the barley straw under the plants. ( It's a 1cm scale)

Hi Mary,

These are probably a Psathyrella species - They won't be doing your plants ant harm - Probably the opposite (they break down organic debris into compounds that are easily metabolised by plants).

Cheers,
Nick
