    Default Mushroooooms anyone?

    In the latest GYO mag there is an artical about mushrooms.

    It got me thinking as I happen to have a really shaddy damp part of the garden and some mushroom spawn I purchased randomly about a year or so ago.

    Does anyone have a mushroom bed? If so I would welcome any advice!


    I will use this thread to advise you of my progress!!

    All i Know is you need a good hard wood. drilla few holes and put the spores in water in and stick it in a black bag for a few months then open it up etc or u could just sprinkle and hope for the best

    I tried this with 4 hardwood logs and 4 types of dowels, from memory, oyster, lion's mane, shitake and something else. I'm still waiting too.
