Mushrooms refer to the spore-bearing portion of the fungus. Such plants do not create food by photosynthesis. They are a new category in The Flowering Garden. This is not to say that growing mushrooms is something new. Indeed we have enjoyed growing - and some times consuming - mushrooms of all types. They can't be considered garden plants, and they usually require specialised care. Still, we enjoy learning about them, and we create this category to showcase the mushrooms we have discovered.
