If there are spruces in your garden and you do not grow mycorrhizal forest mushrooms, it is the right time to change it! Spruce mushroom set - 4 species is a set of mycelium of the most delicious mushrooms, true kitchen rarities. It contains everything that you need to harvest impressive fruit bodies of the pine bolete (Boletus pinophilus), penny bun (Boletus edulis), chanterelle (Cantharellus cibarius) and bay bolete (Boletus badius). These excellent species grow in symbiosis with spruce roots and bear rich crops both under young and older trees. Planting the mycelium does not differ much from planting flower bulbs and the effects will exceed your expectations. Choose the right site and follow the instructions so the charming mushroom caps would appear under your spruces all summer and autumn long.
Planting edible mushrooms in the garden could not be easier and can be performed 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. In favourable weather conditions you may expect the ripe, tasty fruit bodies all vegetation season long: porcini from August to November, bay boletes from June to November and chanterelles from May to November.
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.
