To make mushroom patches in your garden use King Stropharia mushroom spawn.
Mix the spawn with woody substrates such as mulch and straw to produce flushes of mushrooms.
Shady spots and gaps between plants will become productive with gourmet mushrooms.
For Adelaide gardens and similar climates. Mid-March through to January is the season for making King Stropharia garden patches.
A Shaded spot with irrigation is the best position for a King Stropharia Mushroom patch. Yet they can grow in full sun too.
Mushrooms will form when the weather is warm.
King Stropharia Mushrooms are nutritious and tasty.
The flavour is strong with a silky texture and tastes like field mushrooms but with a sweet flavour.
It tastes great in stroganoff, omelettes, stir-fries and more. Dehydration is an effective way to preserve excess mushrooms.
