Lions Mane Log Inoculation Kit
Lion's Mane Mushroom (Hericium erinaceus) is an edible and medicinal mushroom belonging to the tooth fungus group.
A beautiful and unusual looking mushroom comprised of layers of cascading spines. It's now a rare find in the UK and is classed as an endangered species so shouldn't be picked if found in the wild.
This is a slow growing species with a superb sweet, mild flavour and a melt-in-the-mouth texture that gets compared to lobster.
Excellent fried in butter or oil, complementing many different dishes.
Each log kit includes inoculated wooden plugs plus bee's wax to seal the holes and log ends.
An 8mm drill will be required, you also need to melt your wax.
30 pugs are enough to inoculate a meter long log of 15-20 cm diameter (any bigger than this they become hard to handle).
Logs should be fresh / green and less than 8 weeks old and only inoculate one type per log.
> Hardwood is best (oak, beech, birch, alder, ash, elm etc).
> Fruit trees (apple, plum, cherry etc) are ok but will take longer to fruit.
> Soft wood / pines / conifers must be avoided due to their natural anti-fungal properties.
Available items will be posted out the following week direct from Marvellous Mushrooms HQ, shipping is included in the items price
