If you dream of a rich mushroom harvest, but do not live close to the forest, nor have time for long walks in the woods, try out our exceptional Conifers mushroom set - 6 species, intended for garden cultivation. We offer ground mycelium on grain that you only need to plant close to a coniferous tree. The company of a tree is the only thing these mushrooms need. Thanks to the mycorrhizal symbiosis, a mutual relationship between the spawn and tree roots, you will be able to enjoy rich crops of the delicious fruit bodies for 3 to 5 years. The selection offered here consists of the coveted and tasty species: pine bolete (Boletus pinophilus), penny bun or porcini (Boletus edulis), slippery jack (Suillus luteus), saffron milk cap (Lactarius deliciosus), chanterelle (Cantharellus cibarius) and bay bolete (Boletus badius). All these mushrooms are considered a rarity and can be served in many ways: fried, steamed, stewed, roasted, dried or marinated. You cannot describe the satisfaction coming from picking mushrooms in your own garden!
Planting edible mushrooms in the garden is very easy and can be performed all vegetation period long - from April to October. You only need to dig a few holes, 30 - 40 cm wide and 15 cm deep, around a tree. You will achieve the best results making three holes per tree (this recommendation concerns both old and younger trees) located in the distance of ten times the diameter of the trunk. Fill the holes halfway with a mixture of garden soil and peat and sawdust, spread 1/3 of the spawn package over it and cover with soil to ground level. The last step would be abundant watering of the ground around the holes (approximately 10 litres of water per hole, you may add 10 g of sugar to the water in the first watering). We advise to cover the site with moss, pine bark or any other natural forest mulch. Now you only need to water the sites in longer drought periods and wait for the crops to emerge. In favourable weather conditions you may expect the ripe, tasty fruit bodies in summer and autumn (porcini and saffron milk caps from August to November, bay boletes from June to November, chanterelles from May to November and slippery jacks from May to December).
The package contains ground biological spawn (mycelium) on grain. Detailed growing instructions have been included in the package information. The producer estimates the probability of successful mushroom development for 85 - 87%. The emergence of mushrooms depends on the environmental conditions and proper site preparation.
