Deciduous trees mushroom set - 6 species mycelium on grain is the only selection of the excellent edible forest mushrooms intended for cultivation on your own, available on the market. Ceps and boletes live in close symbiotic relationship with tree roots, so you can introduce to your garden. Additionally, when you choose this set, you would not need to ponder, under which tree you should plant the given species. This selection will work on every allotment. In order to harvest aromatic ceps and splendid boletes you only need to have one broad-leaved tree in your garden - a birch, oak or beech. This set consist of mycelium of the birch cep (Boletus betulicola), porcini or cep (Boletus edulis), summer cep (Boletus reticulatus), rough-stemmed scaber stalk (Leccinum scabrum), blushing bolete (Leccinum melaneum) and orange birch bolete (Leccinum versipelle). A single planting of the mushrooms on the properly chosen site will allow you to harvest rich crops for 3 - 5 years. Sufficient humidity and warmth allows the fruit bodies to grow abundantly. You may harvest them already in June (orange birch bolete), July (rough-stemmed scaber stalk) or August (ceps), until end of October. The presented species belong to the most coveted and delicious mushrooms, hence they find a plethora of uses in the kitchen, preferably as addition to roasts, soups and sauces.
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). 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.
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.
