Pre-Inoculated Mushroom Logs

£25.00£35.00 inc. VAT

Grow at home, pre-inoculated mushroom logs. The hassle-free mushroom growing kit.

Due to popular demand, we now offer grow at home mushroom logs (along with our wooden dowel spawn plugs for DIY mushroom log production). These approximately 4-8″ diameter hardwood logs are sourced in the UK from sustainable forests, with each one being cut by hand from healthy, disease-free trees (mainly oak). Professionally graded, hand drilled and sealed with log sealing cheese wax before being inoculated using the same mushroom strains we use in our commercial mushroom growing operation.

All logs we use are from woodland thinnings or forestry waste and were originally destined for chipping or firewood, so we’re giving them another purpose before they’re burnt! We make sure to inoculate all logs within 6 weeks of felling to promise high yields and healthy fruits with each log having the strain and inoculation date stamped on the bottom.

Will fruit naturally each season dependant on strain for up to 4 years (after full colonisation). We used to offer a Grow Guarantee on our pre-inoculated mushrooms logs, but due to introducing more difficult to grow species which are hugely dependant on environmental conditions to fruit, we’re sadly no longer able to offer this.

The perfect gift which keeps giving and giving, suitable for young and old.

  • Mushroom logs should be placed in a shady part of your garden, one which is open to rainfall and ideally remains moist at all times (the ideal conditions for mushrooms to grow in!)
  • Hand made in Bristol with each plugged hole being covered with cheese wax to keep in moisture and block out any contaminants.
  • Healthy, nutritious and delicious mushrooms, grown just as nature intended.
  • Certain mushroom strains like Shiitake can be ‘cold shocked’ to induce fruiting sooner with multiple harvests possible each year.

Full instructions included with many strains available including: Shiitake, Oyster, Winter/Enoki, Maitake (Hen-of-the-woods), Buna-Shimeji, King Trumpet (King Oyster), Lion’s Mane, Black Poplar (Pioppino) and Reishi.

Approximate log dimensions: ~50cm length x 10 – 20cm diameter (4 – 6″)

Inoculated Mushroom Log FAQ’s

Answers to frequently asked questions.

Do you accept cash payments for larger orders?

Yes, we accept cash payments, but would require a none-refundable 25% deposit to be paid to add your order to our jobs list. The remaining balance can be paid in cash on collection (we don't accept cash in the post). Once your order is ready, it will need to be collected and paid for in full within 3 weeks, else we reserve the right to re-sell your order and your deposit will not be refunded.

To pay a cash deposit, please process your order online as normal, select whichever payment method you wish, and use the following discount code at checkout to take 75% off the order, leaving a 25% deposit: cash-deposit-25

Note that this discount code is only to be used to leave a 25% deposit for cash collection orders only. Please make contact with us before to discuss lead-times and collection windows.

There is a minimum order value of £500 to pay a cash deposit.

How will my product be packaged and shipped?

We put a lot of time and money to ensure our parcels are sent out so that they reach you safely and undamaged.

If your item will go in a box, it will be sent out in a discreet, plain, sturdy, double-walled cardboard box of appropriate size, with no branding packaging tape and plenty of internal packaging protection to avoid any damage during transit (though sometimes accidents can happen, but it's rare).

Smaller items which are sturdy and light will be sent out in plain, unbranded, padded envelopes.

All pallet orders are professionally strapped and wrapped with corner protectors.

We try to minimise the use of excessive packaging where can, to help save mother nature and all her gloriousness.

Can I collect my order from your facility?

For larger orders that would otherwise typically go on a pallet, that's fine, but generally speaking, we'd prefer to ship to an address. Please contact us before placing your order if you want to collect your order to see if we can accommodate it. We are based in the Forest of Dean. We've got a busy warehouse where we do our thing, but we don't (yet) have a shop.
