Delight your foodie friends with this unusual gift. With this mushroom kit you can grow your own pearl oyster mushrooms in four simple steps.
Bouquets of oyster mushrooms are waiting to burst out of this box, grown on upcycled coffee from one hundred espressos!
Share the excitement of growing your own, and watch in amazement in the second week as the mushrooms literally double in size every day.
The kits are a great treat for you and your kids, and a perfect gift for green-fingered foodies and garden-deprived city dwellers alike. Just find a light airy spot, follow these four simple steps: Open up - Water - Grow - Harvest. In around two weeks you'll be making your own steps 5 and 6 - cooking and eating!
The Kitchen Gardens are handmade in Sussex, where we monitor each kit and send them out when ready to grow.
Each Kitchen Garden growbox is printed on recycled card and contains clear growing instructions, a good-to-go mushroom growbag, free water spray pump and recipe card.
IMPORTANT: When we send the kit we've prepared it in advance so it's ready to grow! We strongly recommend opening the Kitchen Garden within 1 month of purchase.
Each pack is different and the mushrooms grow in all shapes, sizes and even colours!!
Our biggest yield from the first crop was over 500g, which was excellent but around 200-250g is a more normal yield for the first harvest - it will vary from pack to pack. After the first harvest you can prepare for Round Two; simply leave the Kitchen Garden to rest for 10 days then start again by watering it - all instructions are on the pack - you may even get a third round if you're lucky!
This really is the gift that keeps giving - once you've finished growing mushrooms, you're left with nutrient rich soil enhancer. Just empty the compost from growbag, break it up and sprinkle into pots of houseplants or onto flowerbeds for them to enjoy too!
