I think these guys are just naturally in wood products, but I bet it wouldn't hurt to try to get some known kinds growing in the beds. I think they may have a hard time competing with the existing fungi, though.
I would love to have edible mushrooms in my kitchen garden, but have not so far had success getting them started.

I planted these in my garden using the "Three Amigos" kit from Fungi Perfecti, but I think my conditions were not good and so far none have come up.
