Growing Oysters

In October our plot neighbours shared an order of mushroom growing packs with us. We are growing shitake and our plot neighbours are growing oysters. Our shitake and one batch of oysters came as dowel rods which had been impregnated with mushroom culture. These had to be embedded in holes drilled into a log. We still are waiting patiently for any development. Apparently things should be happening out of sight but it can take a long time before any mushrooms develop.

Our neighbours decided to try for the quicker option and also bought a kit that grew mushrooms on a mini bale of straw. These have started to bear fruit as can be seen below!

Thompson and Morgan have special offers on all of their mushroom kits at the moment click here to view including the more common varieties.
