Are there any mushrooms that could be cultivated on the clippings of cherry/english laurel or Prunus laurocerasus? So far I have put the clippings in plastic sacs where they start to decompose, but would like to accelarate that process. No luck so far with oyster (but I haven't had any luck with mushrooms at all so far)
Almost any hardwood (of which laurel is one-they're related to cherries, etc. ) can be used for chips in buckets or bags for oysters or similar fungi, like Hypsizygus Ulmarius-the White Elm oyster. . Some fungi like stropharia can do well in a patch with chips.
Strains of Reishi and Nameko can sometimes do well on other prunus, so they might do well on laurel. Field and Forest of Wisconsin sells them and I would ask them.
I don't know about other uses.
If tomatoes are a fruit, then ketchup must be a jam. Taste this tiny ad:
