Nutley's Fresh Shittake Grow Your Own Merryhill Mushroom Kit
Product Code : MER07SK1 Barcode : 5060449758394
Sent with growing mushrooms which are spawned and ready to grow, this no-fuss kit from one of the country's leading mushroom growing experts, will see its first crop in days. Mushrooms can be difficult to get started, so Merryhill Mushrooms - sixth generation specialist farmers in West Sussex - have done the hard work for you. Prepared in small batches, the freshly prepared 'logs' arrive with us once a week on a Thursday, and are sent to you on our 24-hour UKMail courier service, which is all included in the price.
Nothing beats the flavour of freshly picked mushrooms, and it's great fun watching them grow - children love them too! The kit is incredibly simple to use and, although it may not look most attractive at first, it does provide a very generous crop of Shittake mushrooms. Each 'log' contains pre-spawned mycelium for Shiitake mushrooms. All you need to do is place the Shittake 'log' into the plastic bag provided, leaving enough room for the humidity to rise, and store between 12 and 20 degrees. Then spray the 'log' regularly to keep the humidity levels up and watch the mushrooms grow.
Once the first crop has been harvested, soak the 'log' in water for up to 30 minutes and leave on a plate or tray. If conditions are correct and the growing instructions have been followed carefully, you should see a second crop start to grow after a couple of days.
Full growing instructions are included with the kit, as well as a saucer for growing the 'log' and a replacement plastic bag. We are always happy to answer any questions at all you may have. For any help, please don't hesitate to message us, or call us on 01903 233299.
