Great product. No waiting, the mushrooms just explode out of the log. Tasty too. I dried most and look forward to eating them soon. Great fun, recommend a lot.

I went mad and bought loads of kits, the majority all cropped at the same time and I only had so many recipes so I made a huge pan of soup and slow cooked a mushroom stroganoff etc you would think I would be sick of the sight of them by now but I love them. My first crop was plentiful, my second crop wasn't as numerous but they were way bigger.

Why choose our kits?

Our ready growing mushroom kits stand out from other brands due to the fact that the mushroom growing process has been partially started.

This unique feature provides several advantages.
It eliminates the need to carry out the lengthy inoculation, saving time and effort. 

By receiving the kits at a stage where the kit is pre started, we can ensure the mycelium is healthy before shipping, ensuring healthy crops.

The riskiest part of mushroom growing is avoiding any contamination on the substrate during colonisation, so we have taken care of this portion of the process, prior to despatch.
