Gardening club have been growing their very own edible grey oyster mushrooms from a kit greatfully donated by Grow Wild from the following Url:
Over the past few weeks, with the help of some enthusiastic gardeners in class 3, we activated the fungus kit, by following the step-by-step instructions from the Grow Wild team. Then we observed the mycelium as it grew through the straw, until finally, after 4 weeks the mushrooms suddenly appeared and will be ready for harvesting soon.
We also received an assortment of wild flower seeds from Kew Gardens which we will be sowing in the near future. In addition to this we have entered the “Grow your own potato challenge” again this year and are currently growing rocket and regional potatoes in grow bags.
If anyone is interested in joining our little club of gardeners please speak to Mrs Crawford.
