Mushroom Windowsill Kit – Shiitake Mushroom

Our Windowsill Mushroom Kits will allow anyone to grow Shiitake mushrooms from their very own windowsill. Handfuls of these delicious mushrooms will be just clutches away from your favourite dish.

Shiitake is an attractive variety from the mushroom family. An intense taste when raw but, when cooked they are loved for their umami flavour. Shiitake mushrooms are completely versatile and make a great addition to vegetarian dishes with an Asian cuisine twist.

Mushrooms are tasty, low in calories, high in protein and a great source of fibre especially for those on plant-based diets. They provide you with vital vitamins including vitamin B, selenium, potassium and copper. With our handy kits, you’ll soon have this delicious and health beneficial vegetable at just the fraction of the cost.

Whether you’re a full-time gardener or beginner, this handy kit includes a base tray, lid, and pre spawned substrate and easy to follow instructions.

Planting and care:

Simply keep them moist and out of direct sunlight and your first crop should be ready to pick in a matter of weeks, plus you can expect at least another 2 pickings after that (See full instructions in Growing Info below).

Dimensions: 17.5cm (7") x 27.5cm (11") x 8cm (3½") depth.

.

1. Take the bag containing ‘cover compost’ from the base tray and store it in a cool place.

2. Place the base tray with the plastic lid on top at a temperature of 20–25°C for 4 or more days. After this period, the substrate will have turned completely white with fungus (mycelium).

3. Take the bag with ‘cover compost’ and punch ten holes in each side. Put the bag in 0.5 litres of water for 20 minutes. Open the bag and spread the ‘cover compost’ evenly and loosely over the substrate within the tray.

4. Now put the entire tray aside with the lid closed for 5–8 days, at a temperature of 20–25°C. In this period, the mycelium will grow through the layer of cover compost to the surface. Once the cover compost is covered with white mycelium, put the tray in a cooler position of 15–18°C.

5. Make sure that the surface of the cover compost does not dry out. Regularly mist spraying with a plant spray will keep it damp.

6. If a good number of baby mushrooms appear, you can water over the tray with a watering can. The substrate and cover compost should be moist, but not too wet. The mushrooms first appear at the edges, and then later in the centre of the tray.

Live Plants

Organic Garden Catalogue strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.

Non Standard Deliveries

Unfortunately like many companies in our industry we are currently only able to supply orders to UK based customers, excluding those in Northern Ireland. We are committed to finding a way that we can resume or normal services again as soon as possible. Please accept our apologies for any inconvience caused.

We reserve the right to contact you and advise an additional charge where necessary and are happy to quote for carriage of specific products to more remote areas. Some items may not be available to all areas.

We reserve the right to revise any carriage charges in the event of carrier price increase or other unforeseen circumstances. We will always advise of the carriage charge before payment is taken.
