Mushrooms reproduce via spores which are far too small for the human eye to see, unlike plants which start off as seeds. As they’re a form of fungi, mushrooms rely on nutrients for growth as opposed to the photosynthesis process involving chlorophyll, meaning they are able to grow in almost any environment providing that the nutrients are there. The initial stage of growing mushrooms involves the appearance of mycelium which is created when two compatible spores mate. Mycelium is like the fungal root system, and we produce pure culture mycelium, which is called mushroom spawn. With a supply of quality mushroom spawn anyone can learn how to grow mushrooms for themselves.
We have been providing all of the resources needed to grow the finest mushrooms at home since 2002. Lead by professional trained mycologist, Adrian Ogden, and based in East Yorkshire, we’re able to not only offer quality products but also useful advice on how to grow mushrooms. No matter whether you’re a professional or amateur grower, you can be confident that you’ll find the equipment you need. We’re home to the largest selection of mushroom plug spawn in the UK and work with over 250 clients across the world.
We believe that by offering a unique service, we can help our clients improve their mushroom growing skills and increase their yield. Working in partnership with the North Yorkshire Moors National Park Sustainable Development Fund, we research projects to assess economic viability as well as the ecological and social benefits that woodland mushroom farming provides.
There are many reasons why you should use our services other than the ones we’ve already mentioned. We’re one of the few organisations to offer exclusive native strains and species. Another reason is that the dowels we use in our plug spawn are larger than those of our competitors, which means they’re tried and proven to deliver high yields. All our growing kits and products are accompanied with comprehensive instructions to help you understand the kit and species you have and inform you about how to grow mushrooms in the right way.
We can also create bespoke commercial spawn made to order. All products that are in stock when they are ordered will be dispatched worldwide within 48 hours maximum. If you ever have any questions about our services or require any growing advice, don’t hesitate to contact us.
