Organic Shiitake - Lentinula edodes - 'Cold'-strain outdoor spawn-bag

This Shiitake is proved for outdoor cultivation to extant the harvest season some weeks in spring and fall. Also for cultivation at higher altitudes Shiitake 'cold' is the best choice.
Spawn is always made fresh on demand. Production time: 2 to 3 weeks.

Your receive readily colonized wood substrate for laying out a mushroom patch. Suitable for beginners.

Laying out a mushroom patch with wood colonizing mushrooms is very easy. The ideal time is spring, as soon as there is no more night frost to be expected. The base of the patch consists of wood chips of hardwoods such as poplar, oak, alder, aspen, maple, birch, ash, beech, willow or elm. Soft woods are not suitable for mushroom cultivation.
