Gardening with Mushrooms
Did you know you can use mushroom spawn to grow edible mushrooms alongside the vegetables in your garden?
- Benefits of gardening with mushrooms
Add a high protein food source to your garden
Utilize shady, underused parts of your garden
Mushrooms decompose organic matter and add nutrients to the soil
- How to get started choosing reliable species and simple methods:
Wine cap and oyster mushrooms are great for beginners. They are resilient, adaptable,
and can tolerate a range of conditions. Using mushroom spawn, which is essentially the “seeds”
of mushrooms, and easy-to-find substrates, you can mulch your garden paths, vegetable beds,
and around perennials.
Recommended Substrates: Hardwood chips, sawdust, straw, agricultural byproducts such as
rice or bean hulls, corn stalks, etc. Freshly cut wood chips and sawdust are best.
Wine Cap Sawdust Spawn
Wine cap mushrooms aren’t typically found in grocery stores and taste like
artichokes or asparagus. They can grow as large as dinner plates. They’ll also tolerate a
bit more sun exposure than other species of mushrooms. Wine cap is being researched
for its use in making nutrients more bioavailable to edible plant species and growing on
Wood chips have been shown to increase soil permeability.
These decomposer fungi thrive on hardwood chips and straw. Wine cap especially
love soft hardwoods, like poplars and aspens. Although softwoods aren’t generally
recommended for mushroom cultivation, wine cap can tolerate some in your mix. Shoot
for no more than 50%. Wine cap seem to do better if the beds have a variety of particle
sizes which can also help with moisture retention. Avoid branches or other very large
pieces of wood as these take longer to colonize and can create too much air space in the
bed.
Oyster Sawdust Spawn
Oyster mushrooms are extremely vigorous and readily outgrowing competitors
and potential contaminants. These brightly colored mushrooms are pretty adaptable
both in temperature and substrate preference. Meaty in texture and flavor, they’re truly a
culinary delight and can replace button mushrooms in most recipes. For these reasons,
oyster mushrooms are well suited for beginners looking to get their feet wet in outdoor
mushroom growing. Blue and italian oyster species do well in temperate environments,

while golden oysters prefer warmer weather and snow oysters prefer cooler
temperatures.
How to mulch with spawn and substrate:
Using the “lasagna method,” layer your substrate and mushroom spawn about
3-5 inches deep in garden paths and around perennials. In vegetable beds, stick to
around 2 inches and be sure not to bury your veggies. Thoroughly water the area.
Mushrooms can grow within a few months but may take about a year. Be sure to keep
projects moist; water them as you would your veggies.
