The Garden’s Fairy Rings on BBC Radio 4

Bruce Langridge

Listen to Professor Lynne Boddy talk about fairy rings on BBC Radio 4’s Living World. Lynne, and presenter Chris Spurring, spent a whole day recording the programme here at the Garden on a very wet day in September. Although not mentioned on the programme, the fairy ring they talk about at the start is made up of Lilac Pinkgills (Entoloma porphyrophaem) which could be found on our greater butterfly orchid-rich hay meadow on Waun Las NNR.
