Wine Cap mushrooms (also known as Garden Giants, or King Stropharia) are great for beginner growers. Transplant spawn into straw or hardwood chips in a shaded planter box, or mulched around the base of fruit trees, perennial plants and garden pathways. Keep watered in the summer and dry periods, and enjoy the giant burgandy-capped mushrooms as they sprout from your garden. Add more mulch annually to keep the mushroom crop coming back year after year.
