Do any of you grow your own mushrooms? And have I killed my box tree?

I have a small round box tree, parts of it are brown. Did the frost kill it or all the ants running around in the soil in the summer?

Mushrooms - had a kit once, nothing grew, never tried aain!

Box - It might be frost damage or it might be Box blight, which is very bad news. Can you post a picture?

No, it doesn't look like blight. I wondered if the ants had damage it or the frost, mil lost a box to frost last year.

Can't do a pic ATM, it's covered in snow too. Should I dh bring it in to the conservatory?

I'll give the mushrooms one try, it's only a £1 shop one not a £15 oyster mushroom kit.

Oddly I was better at growing things when I was younger hmm
