Toad-stooly amazing! Gardeners stunned by mega mushroom which weighs the same as a small baby






They are normally picked up in the supermarket in trays or bags you can easily fit in your fridge - but not this mushroom.


The giant fungus has sprung up at the Trentham Estate, Staffordshire, were stunned gardeners watched it grow and grow - to a mammouth 18 inches wide.


The Giant Puffball now weighs in at a hefty 5lb - the same as a small baby - and mysteriously appeared in the estate's Italian Garden last month.

good friend of mine has a photo of himself holding one about that size and a buddy of his holding one about twice the size. that's a lot of food if they're harvested soon enough.
