Parasol Mushrooms are out in fields near woodland, woodland glades, pastureland and sometimes on stable dunes, from now till November, if we are free of frosts. Edible, and best picked when just opening and cooked when very fresh, it is best to check online or in book references for similar species, unless you know your toadstools! Dramatic-looking, it is easy to spot when mature as it is a  large fungus standing upright on a tall stalk. Conditions: Cloudy and mild. Temperature: Max 20- Min 16C.
