Hello everyone,

Having brought our gardening space almost to completion with variety of foods, we would like to now try to cultivate mushrooms outdoors.
We would like to have some log cultures of most likely shitake and reishi probably with king stropharia in a wood chip bed.

I cannot find a good website in Denmark and searched for a spore source elsewhere. It's currently a little above our economy to get shipped the dowels from USA and also I found quite a few websites in Holland and Germany and UK that sell 100dowels for about 17€ which again is rather expensive.
The cheapest source i've found so far that offers everything that we need is http://mushroombox.co.uk/ with dowels for 3£.

I'd like to know what you guys think.

-- Kindest regards,
Adrian

Mushroom box is supposed to be reliable, according to a relative in Scotland.

Not sure if this fits what you're looking for since I don't know much about cultivation but here's a company local to me (Slovenia) that does lots of mushroom related stuff: http://www.goba.eu/en/products/mushroom-cultivation/

That seems like a pretty good set of prices 19 euros for 300 plugs is not so bad when compared to 18 euros for 50 plugs.
