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 21 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.
After about a week and a half, little spots were visible, as described in the instructions, and over the next three days these spots grew into little mushrooms.
The following three days they have grown like one-oh and the box is now bursting with them, so much so that we've had to take some out: the harvesting has begun!
Thanks Merryhill - top marks for this one :)
