I have a question on growing Red Cap and Shaggy Mane outside. I have a large load of Pine wood chips, couple of bales of Wheat Straw, 15 gallons of CoCo Coir, 1 cu.ft. of hardwood sawdust and 2 cu ft. Peat Moss.

I can make the pile up to 10 inches high.

Is it possible to use combinations of these materials to layer and grow these right next to the house (east facing wall)? I can top it off later when I get some hardwood chips.

Are there other varieties that would be better?

Thanks

I think hardwood chips would be better than pine for those species.

I'm using hardwood mulch and straw as a planting medium and I have me beds situated on the north side of a building.
