GROW MUSHROOMS THE EASY WAY
Mushrooms are funny little things, neither vegetable nor animal, but something uniquely in-between. Their ‘meaty’ texture and propensity for soaking up flavours makes them a cook’s dream. While mushroom forays are a glorious seasonal outing, they’re entirely reliant on someone possessing a rock-solid knowledge of fungal classification; mistakes can be fatal. Growing your own mushrooms from a kit is a safe and easy way to enjoy them without any aggro. Pre-spawned mushroom kits will germinate in just a few weeks or days; the fungal version of sowing cress. It’s best to buy kits online rather than picking them up in shops because you want the mushroom spawn to be fresh, not lingering on a shelf for too long.
