I tend to find them around the edge of where Scots Pines are growing, but I don't often see them about. Having said that I think I've got a patch growing in my woodland but I need to do a bit more research before I try eating them.

Don't give up on Ceps yet. Found these giants less than two weeks ago, & in the past have found the odd one close to Christmas providing the weather is not too cold. I've found a few saffron milkcaps in the past - they are meant to be more common in Scotland than down south.




Also plenty of winter chanterelles & hedgehog mushrooms to be found too

You need to look under pines or spruce - lots in Scotland, but found elsewhere too of course. See what you can find. The only (very few) times I've found them it was slightly earlier in the year - but given the mild autumn you could be lucky.

Saffron milk caps are not winter species. They are coming to an end now. Loads grow around here, but I haven't seen more than the occasional one for a few weeks.

I found a few saffron Milk caps at the weekend. However, they were all very maggoty so they stayed in the forest.
