Product Description

Product Description

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!

Tonight I made mushroom stroganoff with my very own home grown mushrooms from these fab little kits and they tasted wonderful!
The box arrived in no time at all - it looks neat and compact and sat nicely on my kitchen window sill. Clear instructions on the box and all it demands is a couple of squirts of water a day - this is a far cry from the flea infested mushroom kits we used to buy back in the 90's! The mushrooms emerged in no time at all - it was wonderful and actually quite astonishing to watch them growing bigger every day through their little window and in just over a week I had a perfect crop - or flush as it is technically known! There's a great novelty factor with these mushroom kits and I love the thought of reusing and recycling as they are grown out of used coffee grounds. There's obviously a lot of love which has gone in to this product and I did actually check out the Express Mushroom Company's website and even posted a picture of my mushrooms on their Facebook page! And of course, I forgot to mention - there's a chance of a second flush so bring on more recipe ideas! I love this product and it is also a great idea for a gift - I'm already totting up how many people I can give one to for Christmas!

Fabulous gift! I bought 2 of these great kits, 1 for my gourmet sister in law and 1 for my chaotic, wannabe gourmet father, both loved their kits. I didn't see them till at least their second or third harvest, was amazed by the growth and the culinary results.

Arrived on time on both occasions, apparently really easy to do with instructions so clear even my dad was up and running within a couple of days. A brilliant fresh addition to any kitchen, I might have to get one for myself!

Great gift, great food and great fun(gi)!

These kits are really fun for both adults and kids...my sister in law and nephew loved watching the mushrooms grow and then finally eating them :-)

It’s amazing that they grow from used coffee grounds and exciting that there is a surprise second harvest so make sure you keep hold of it after the first one.

I would highly recommend these kits if you are after a unique gift and experience!

I sent this kit to my younger brother who has just turned 14 and he loved it. Whenever I called by to visit I was witness to the burgeoning mushroom empire he was proudly creating in my mum's kitchen. The doubling in size that went on in the second week before the grand day of picking was fascinating to watch. I was invited to the mushroom banquet on the evening of harvest and I've got to say they were absolutely delicious! The joint team of my brother and mum produced a lovely mushroom risotto from a set of recipes which came with the pack. The whole process had a very satisfying end to it!

I will definitely be using this again as an unusual and creative gift idea next time I'm looking for something original for one of my friends or family.

I've purchased these mushrooms before and had about 3 harvests from a single pack!, was seriously impressed with how easy things were. I thought I'd purchase more as it would have made a perfect Christmas gift for a very close friend of mine.

However upon inspecting the packaging I noticed a strong smell of ammonia emanating from within, not only were the mushrooms already growing inside but they had started to rot.

Amazon promptly refunded me so can't fault them and I really want to buy more but not sure if I should now. Pics uploaded.

Having always been an avid mushroom lover, I was really excited about the opportunity to grow my own. These mushrooms grow in old coffee grinds so are environmentally friendly too. It was much easier than I thought and I was delighted to see the progress of their growth! The first batch was huge and I made a delicious stir fry and also had them for breakfast cooked in soy sauce and butter alongside scrambled eggs. A second batch is now growing and I can't wait to try out some more recipes. Will definitely be trying some other varieties too!

The kit I originally purchased failed to grow even though instructions had been followed, however, when I contacted the company, they immediately sent me a replacement kit that began growing almost straight away.

Mushrooms grew visibly each day so would be a good activity to do with children.

I harvested my first crop yesterday and followed included recipe instructions, they were wonderful! Will be attempting another crop according to box instructions in a week or so.

Needed a week or so to give them time to grow but then 2 great crops of mushrooms. Very satisfying to watch them grow each day and tasted fantastic. Plan on buying these packs as Christmas presents this year.
