Why not try something a little bit different, and grow your own mushrooms? Mushroom growing may seem complicated but our easy to grow kits are provided with detailed instructions and require no specialist equipment. Lions' Mane (Hericium erinaceus) have been used traditionally in China and Japan for hundreds of years, and are renowned for their medicinal benefits.

This unusual variety has a taste likened to lobster when cooked with butter, but can be eaten boiled, grilled or as an ingredient to many other dishes. Kits also contain Wax, Wax Applicator and Instructions.Please note that mushroom orders may take up to 4 weeks for delivery.

100 mushroom dowels (KC4797)
30 spawn plugs (KC4784)

How to Grow
Please note that these dowels are available all year, however the logs should be cut during the trees dormant season, between leaf fall in autumn and early spring, and it is recommended that the dowels are planted in the log no longer than 6 weeks after the log has been cut. The wooden dowels are impregnated with mushroom mycelium ready to 'plant' into a hardwood log. Drill holes and insert the dowels before sealing the log with a layer of wax. Position logs in a shady wooded area or wrapped in black polythene and buried under ground. Mushroom mycelium may take between 6 and 18 months to colonise a log. Once logs are fully colonised they can be moved to a warm, sheltered, moist area in dappled shade where they will begin to fruit.
More Info
Each species differs and they will only fruit when environmental conditions are right for them. Small, white nodes will appear from the log and these will develop into mushrooms within a week. Maintain humidity and moisture levels during this time and do not move the log. To harvest them, grasp the mushrooms at the base of the stem and twist them away from the log. Logs will continue to fruit for up to 4 weeks. When growing mushrooms allow several months recuperation time for the mycelium to regenerate before producing another crop. Caution: Some people are allergic to mushrooms or mushroom spores and others may become sensitised by high concentrations of spores.
