Welcome to Gourmet Woodland Mushrooms – Quality Gourmet Mushroom Spawn for Businesses & Individuals.
Our UK based Spawn Lab produces Plug Spawn, Sawdust Spawn, Grain Spawn and Growing Kits.


Plug Spawn

Choose from 10 gourmet mushroom species: Shiitake, Oyster Mushrooms, Enoki, Chicken-of-the-woods – many of our strains are unique and can’t be found anywhere else.  Six bag sizes are available: 30 – 1200 plugs with discounts for orders of 6000 plugs and above.  All our plug spawn is supplied with detailed instructions (including illustrations and photographs), which will guide you all the way through the growing process.  We offer free advice and support to our customers.

Sawdust Spawn

Over the coming weeks we will be adding 15 species to grow using logs, woodchip, cereal straw, spent coffee grounds and cardboard.   Made using Beech-wood ‘micro-chips’ that have a consistant particle size making our sawdust spawn alot easier to use than the sawdust spawn that other companies are offering.  Sawdust spawn is available in 1kg and 3kg bags and is made individually to order ensuring that the mycelium is at the peak of it’s growth potential.

Grain Spawn

Produced from certified organic rye grain, we manufacture Grain Spawn from 15 mushroom species in 1kg, 2kg and 2.5kg bags.  If you’re an indoor mushroom grower purchasing Grain Spawn from afar we can offer you high quality spawn at a competitive price.  We manage our own Culture Bank, so we can offer strains which are not available from large spawn laboratories.  These strains have been selected because they possess unique properties that are of great benefit to smaller growers.

Oyster Mushroom Kits

We have a growing range of user-friendly Oyster mushroom growing kits. Oyster mushrooms are probably the most adaptive mushroom species out there, and they can be easily grown using a variety of household waste from used coffee grounds to old books, to cardboard. With our Oyster mushroom recycler kits anyone can enjoy growing fresh gourmet mushrooms without having to use special equipment or without any previous knowledge of mushroom growing.
