Our plug spawn is made using specially designed sprial-grooved birch wood dowels. The sprial groove protects the mycelium from the shock of inoculation, allowing it to recover quickly and begin colonising the timber almost straight away. Mushroom mycelium grows in circles not in straight lines, which is why our dowels perform better than straight-grooved dowels.
Available in the following bag sizes: 30, 120, 300, 600, 900, and 1200 plugs (bulk discounts are available for orders of 6000 plugs or above).
30 and 120 plug bags are kept in stock, whilst the larger sizes (300 and above) are made to order – which normally takes 7 to 14 days.
With all purchases a 10 page illustrated instruction booklet is included which covers the whole growing process from selecting the right log, inoculation, to fruiting. We offer free advice and support via email for all our spawn products.
10 delicious and productive gourmet mushroom species for growing using logs and tree stumps are currently available.
