Can I grow Mushrooms in my garden?

Category: Mushroom Info

Yes! You can grow mushrooms in your garden. It is possible to make a growing bed from suitable materials, depending on what variety of mushroom you are growing. For example, Yellow chanterelle would need to grow symbiotically with the roots of conifer trees, you can make a growing bed from soil collected from the floor of a conifer/pine/spruce forest or even plant some young pine saplings in the new growing bed before introducing your colonised substrate block or grain spawn. Some mushrooms will grow from wheat bran supplemented hardwood sawdust, straw, compost, decaying logs, coffee or hay. There are many substrates used to grow different mushrooms. In the right conditions, our grow bags can be used outdoors in a shady damp part of your garden. Watch out for slugs!
