Sawdust Spawn

An all-purpose spawn for indoors & outdoors to grow using coffee grounds, woodchip & straw…

We produce in 1kg & 3kg bags which are made-to-order to ensure the mycelium is at the very peak of it’s growth potential. Sawdust Spawn is often called Substrate Spawn, as this is spawn that is used in the final stage of growing to inoculate other wood based materials like logs and woodchip, and also cereal straw and spent coffee grounds.

Grain Spawn

Grain Spawn will be added shortly to our Online Shop. 250g, and 500g bags will be in stock & 1kg plus 2.5kg bags will be made-to-order. We use Grain Spawn to make all our products so we to increase our production capacity to make it available online which requires significant investment.

What Our Customers Say

Without your fantastic spawn and helpful website I personally wouldn’t have been able to grow mushrooms as well as we are now and I am forever grateful for your hard work!

Great products and having success with outdoor Oysters fruiting on woodchip.  Came with easy to follow instructions. Customer support second to none. Looking forward to expanding shroom garden with new products when available.

Hi there! The King Oyster grain spawn I got off you is top notch. Way more active than the stuff I made from a spore syringe.

Just a note to say the plugs arrived in great condition, thanks to your excellent packaging! Really impressed….thanks so much, I’ll be a customer for life!

I have bought a number of your products in the past and I’m experimenting with growing media; so far coffee grounds have been very successful.

Hi!  I just got my first delivery from you and I’m very happy with the healthy plugs I received.  I want to make another order…

Hello, I recently bought a King Stropharia and a King Oyster Liquid Culture from you. I had to write to tell you they are fantastic, the syringes were full of mycelium and they’ve taken unbelievably quick.

The documentation you send (with plug spawn) and your packaging are brilliant: clear, concise, informative and interesting.  I hope you are thriving.
