Ready to get started growing gourmet wood-cultivated mushrooms year-round in your own backyard? The Log Plugging Kit gives you just what you need to inoculate logs or stumps in your own backyard with the mushroom spawn of your choice, beginning a garden of fine mushrooms that you and your family will enjoy for many seasons. This process is so simple -- and you're going to love the delicious results!

The Log Plugging Kit contains a 5/16-inch drill bit that will fit any standard power drill, one pound of soy wax for securing the plugs into the log or stump, and a small paintbrush used to spread the wax perfectly around the plug. Here's what you do:

Have your mushroom plugs ready (we offer Shiitake and Brown Oyster). Select one or more fresh-cut logs or stumps and place them in an area where they will receive weekly watering or will stay moist (but not soaking wet) at all times. (If you prefer a dryer location, make sure to give them a weekly watering.) When we say "fresh-cut," anything that has been cut within about 6 weeks will work. We recommend oak, maple, sweetgum, or poplar logs or stumps, though you may want to experiment with other types. Deciduous hardwoods are best; this method will NOT work with conifers.

Interestingly, the size of the log determines how long it will produce fresh mushrooms. The rule of thumb is that the number of productive years is equal to the number of inches in diameter of the log. That is, a 10-inch diameter log should produce for 10 years, a 4-inch-diameter for 4 years, etc.

Fit the 5/16-inch bit into your power drill and drill holes at least 5 to 6 inches apart into the logs or stumps. Then place the wooden mushroom plugs into the holes, "painting" them into place with the melted soy wax and small paintbrush. That's it -- you're good to go!

If your log or stump is dry, you may want to give it a good soaking or watering-in after securing the mushroom plugs. Otherwise, just maintain as always, never letting it dry out. The mushroom spawn typically takes about 8 months to a year to become established within the logs. Once it does, it produces mushrooms year-round! You're going to love going out to the garden to collect not only flowers, herbs, and veggies, but also fresh mushrooms!

Superior Germination Through Superior Science

Park's Superior Seeds Park Seed's humidity- and temperature-controlled seed storage vault Park Seed offers some of the highest-quality vegetable and flower seeds available in the industry, and there are a number of reasons for this.

First of all, we have humidity- and temperature-controlled storage, and we never treat any of our seeds with chemicals or pesticides. Nor do we ever sell GMO's (genetically modified seeds), so you always know the products you're buying from us are natural as well as safe for you and the environment.

Superior Standards - University Inspected

Testing seeds against minimum germination standards To make sure we are providing the best seed product possible and that our customers will get the highest number of seedlings from every packet, we conduct our own germination testing and have quality-control measures in every stage of our seed-handling operation. We hold ourselves to standards that are at or above federal and state standards, including testing specific crops more frequently than recommended by federal guidelines. And in order to maintain our organic certification, we welcome Clemson University to inspect us annually to make sure our organic seeds, which are stored and processed separately, are being handled properly.

Hand Packed By Experienced Technicians

Park Seed has been handling and packing vegetable and flower seeds for 145 years, a history that has given us a great understanding of how each variety should be cared for and maintained throughout every step of theprocess, from collection to shipping.

When packing our seeds, the majority are actually done by hand (with extreme care!), and we often over-pack them, so you're receiving more than the stated quantity.

The Park Seed Gold Standard

Park Seed's exclusive Fresh-Pak gold foil seed packets And many of our seeds are packed in our exclusive Fresh-Pak gold foil packets, which are lined to keep moisture out, so the seeds stay fresher for longer. We carefully pack very tiny or fragile seeds in crush-proof vials to ensure safe delivery to your home. Some of the small seeds are also offered as "pellets" (have a clay coating) to make sowing and growing easier.

When it comes to the kinds of seeds we offer, we are constantly seeking something new and provide many unique and hard-to-find varieties from all around the world. Our on-staff horticulturists are ready and available to share their expertise to help you with the success of these seeds, so you can grow a beautiful and productive garden!
