Wine Cap (Garden Giant) Outdoor Kit ( up to 6m2 )


The Wine Cap is probably the easiest mushrooms to grow outdoors. Simply follow the enclosed instructions and you should establish a patch of giant edible mushrooms which can fruit for years. Wine caps grow best in woodchips spread thinly over the ground, but can also be grown in straw or manure. The mushrooms take between 4 and 12months to mature, depending on the time of year. Left to their own devices, they can reach collosal sizes - a single mushroom can weigh several kilograms and can reach up to 2 feet in diameter!

These mushrooms have long been grown in mulches between rows of vegetables, especially sweetcorn - this method of growing has been proven to be highly beneficial for both the vegetable plant and the mushrooms, which grow in symbiosis, achieving greatly enhanced yields of both vegetable and mushroom.

Wine caps are very low maintenance as long as they are grown in a shaded region (close to vegetable cover or under trees or bushes), and will fruit under a wide range of conditions. Just make sure that you plant them where you will see them when they fruit! Mushrooms are best picked before they exceed 6" in diameter.

Fluhes will continue for up to two years, but if you add extra organic material, such as fresh woodchips to the patch annually, mushroom harvests will continue perpetually.

SINGLE KIT - will produce 2.5kg of seeding material, suitable for starting a mushroom patch up to 6m2(65 sq.feet), which will yield anywhere between 100kg and 500kg of mushrooms. For larger areas, please see our WINE CAP DOUBLE KIT.
