Well, sorry I'm not from UK, but I would think that you could try some of the same places as here in the U.S. -- I would talk to arborists, foresters, or tree surgeons for logs or fresh chips.
:strokebeard:

(If you're sterilizing the following substrates they don't have to be 'kiln-dried', but won't hurt anything if they are. Will make life easier for you (and the mycelia) if your sawdust hasn't been sitting out in the wet in the open air.)

**Just make sure there are no additives, preservatives, toxic substances on or in any of these!**

Here are some suggestions from R. R. Wayne's website :

[hardwood] "sawdust that comes from the milling of kiln-dried lumber... can often be obtained from woodworking shops, furniture makers, and mills that make value-added wood products such as hardwood flooring, panels, and the like."

"ideas for the UK courtesy of David Wheldon: David has prepared substrate from composite logs called "Clean Heat." These are made of compressed shavings and sawdust from beech furniture making. ... They are are distributed by M J Giddings, Bedfordshire, telephone 01234 376722. Another substrate, suitable for oyster mushrooms, is a cat-litter said to be completely without additives, made of softwood sawdust. ... The trade name is "Fussy Puss" and it is obtainable widely; in particular it is stocked by Wilkinson's stores (ironmongers and hardware)."

thanks i appreciate your help.
In the past i have tried cat litter and was a failure, but it could have been a bad culture...

it's a lot harder than you'd think. i ended up getting sawdust from a fish smoker in scotland. for logs i'd go to a tree surgeon.

we're not set up the same over here. better here all round  :smile: :thumbup:
