Growing in your garden?
    #610019 - 04/16/02 02:38 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Anyone had any experience of growing outside in the UK? I'm currently redesiging my back garden, any ideas of the kind of thing i could put down if i was to want to spawn mushrooms outside? Bark?

Don't worry, B. Caapi

Get your hands on some horse shit! LOL
Mix it with a couple bales of peat and straw or wood chips. You want to create an enviroment that shrooms love. Heat, moisture, and food. You could also get untreated mulch and place a thin layer on top, about an inch.

I'm a gardener and find this combo works great. Just don't burn the soil with too much fertilzer...

if you're going to do an outdoor bed first you hve to choose a species that wil thrive in your climate. i'm not sure but i think cyanescens of azures would work. these are both wood loveing species and take ptience and practice, i haven't had much luck with them. you can find some guides for them in the grow/find section under growing other species. read these guides to get a good start then you'll be able to ask more specific questions, thus you will get more specific answers. i hpe i was of a little help. peace, concretefeet.

Considering the variability of our climate, growing cubes outdoors would be a pretty hit-and-miss affair. Ps.azurescens and Ps. cyanescens have been grown with success with the aim of fruiting in early autumn, but I think it's probably a bit too late to be getting any fruit this year.
If you've got a rleiably warm spot, maybe a greenhouse? you might be able to grow a few cubes "outdoors", but even then you run the risk of overheating on hot days.
I might give it a go, just for laffs this summer, but I'm not overly hopeful...
