The H.U.G. The Hypsizygus ulmarius Garden Patch, Hypsizygus ulmarius
Moderately Easy to start this variety.
A great ally for most garden vegetables, this aggressive Garden Oyster mushroom unlocks nutrients from straw, sawdust, and organic debris, feeding the roots of underlying plants. Ideal for over-wintering and mulching, or early Spring planting where straw is overlaid, the HUG kit is a natural way to recycle nutrients and grow gourmet mushrooms at the same time.
Our outdoor Mushroom Patches need to be mixed into a bed of material such as soil, ash or hardwood chips (the type of material will depend on the mushroom being cultivated, and is not provided) and allowed to grow out and colonize the bed. Inoculations should take place between March and October in the Northern latitudes, year 'round in the Southern latitudes. As the Mushroom Caretaker, your job is to carefully select the location of your mushroom bed, then monitor the condition of your Patch and water it according to the instructions (Outdoor Mushroom Patches can be watered with chlorinated water because there is much more material both in and around the bed to which the chlorine can bond, thus greatly reducing its effect on the mycelium). After the bed is fully colonized with mushroom mycelium (typically 9–12 months), mushrooms will begin to form. With appropriate care, mushrooms should continue to appear for several years thereafter.
