Field/Shop Mushrooms

A Delicious Treat

Shop or Field mushrooms are also called Agaricus or in this photo Chestnut Mushrooms. They are white or brown depending on the strain and button or flat shape, depending on the stage you pick them at. Freshly picked field mushrooms are sweet, juicy and tasty. Big Brown Flats are great on the BBQ or grilled!

The starter kit shows how to grow them inside in a clean way and when it has finished flushing you can add the spent compost to your compost/worm farm or mulch with it. If you want to go further, we explore the secrets of continuing the crop into your own compost outside so you can expand the kit out. The info pack includes compost formulae and tips for getting into this exciting hobby! For bigger projects drop us an email for free advice and back ground ideas.
