Chestnut Mushroom Kits
Our ready growing kits are fully prepared with baby mushrooms ready to explode into full size mushrooms in a few days. Very low in calories and full of nutrients, the most widely consumed mushroom in the world. With a delicious nutty taste. A lower water content with less shrinkage in cooking.
Use the plastic bag as protection from drying draughts unless in a protected damp place, but make sure the bag is open. Water gently, usually daily, but it is only the top inch that needs water, not the whole pot! Once picking is finished, water well and keep the top inch damp and you should see another crop within a week or so. Empty out the pot after three weeks, use the compost in the garden. Ideal Temperature 17C
Try raw in salads, In risottos and Pastas. Stuffed or In Garlic on toast. Try replacing half your meat with finely chopped mushroom for a healthier burger

Nothing beats the flavour of freshly picked mushrooms, and it's great fun watching them grow - children love them too! Each kit contains pre-spawned mycelium for brown chestnut mushrooms, and a top layer of casing compost. The mushrooms are already growing. All you need to do is spray daily with a mister to keep the compost moist, and the mushrooms will get bigger. Once picked, more will follow, and each kit has enough for several weeks worth of cropping.
Mushrooms will continue to grow if left between 14 and 20 degrees - ideal for your kitchen or utility room. In daylight or darkness but not direct sunlight.
Full growing advice is provided on the side of the pot, and with FAQ's on our website and our contact details help is always on hand should you require some guidance.
