about

The art of mushroom-growing in England had been passed on from generation to generation without the development of very exact methods, and there is still considerable ignorance of some of the most important factors. This fascinating guide on mushroom-growing seeks to elucidate the most important of these factors, making it a wonderful handbook for beginners and also proving a useful reference for seasoned growers. Chapters contained within this text include: The Source of Success, Experience and Result, How the Spawn is Made, Testing the Original Spore Cultures, Selection of the Site, Preparation of Compost, Making the Beds, Spawning, Selection of Casing Soil, and many more. A fascinating and comprehensive treatise on the subject, no collection of mycological literature would be complete without a handbook such as this. Originally published in 1914, this rare antiquarian text is proudly republished here complete with its original illustrations and a new prefatory introduction to the subject.
