Shiitake Hardwood is our best Shiitake strain for outdoor log growing. As it fruits in a wide temperature range, with good log management flushes can be obtained throughout the year using the the ‘soak and strike’ system.
Most commonly available hardwood logs are suitable, with oak, hornbeam, and chestnut sustaining flushes over several years.
The Saw Trench Method should also be considered if you are competent with a chainsaw.
This very adaptable Shiitake strain can also be grown indoors using our Beech Wood Pellets
