What To Grow This Season

This summer is finally nearing its end and we’re soon to be welcomed by a cooler change. Currently my greenhouse is full of pink and white oyster mushrooms and lion’s mane.

The pink oyster being our number one favourite for its remarkable tolerance to fluctuations of both temperature and humidity making it the ideal candidate for beginners. It’s best grown at temperatures above 20 degrees Celsius.

White oyster produces large, plentiful yields with thick, meaty white caps. The soft tender flesh of the white oyster mushroom is rich in flavour and easy to grow.

The fascinating lion’s mane mushroom is surprisingly easy to fruit. It’s fibrous structure and sweet flesh result in it being a very popular faux meat.

With the lower temperatures approaching I’ve begun to prepare for growing king oyster mushrooms. They produce robust, meaty stems with a mild mushroom flavour. Great for marinating and grilling, in soups or stir-fried.

Make Spawn With Sterilised Grain Bags

Each sterilised grain spawn bag has been carefully prepared by hydrating whole oats in a gypsum bath for 24 hours before sterilisation. 

The bag itself features a 0.2 micron filter patch to facilitate fresh air exchange without the contents becoming contaminated. 

Additionally, the self healing injection port allows the user to simply inoculate the grain using a liquid culture syringe with minimal risk of contamination.

Sterilised grain spawn bags make it possible to produce your own mushroom grain spawn without the use of a pressure cooker.

Grain Spawn Starter

Grain spawn is a little known secret weapon of the world of mushroom cultivation. It’s made from sterilised grains that have been inoculated with a live mycelium culture.

Grain spawn contains a lot of energy for the mycelium to consume. It’s a bit like rocket fuel for mushrooms. Once it’s added to your substrate it takes off like wild fire. 

Mother Nature works her magic using spores but in a controlled environment you need to tip the scales in your favour by using clean high-quality grain spawn so you are doing your best to ensure success.
