The Great Mushroom Growing Challenge

It's autumn and it's probably raining.

Fancy doing something indoors that's a bit muddy, ever-so-slightly smelly and really cool?

Did you know you could grow mushrooms in your kitchen cupboard?

Then it's time to take part in The Great Mushroom Growing Challenge!

All you need is:
  • A mushroom growing kit (from your local garden centre)

  • A flower spray

  • Some water

Make sure you keep following The Mushroom Diaries and tell us how you're getting on. We'd love to hear about your mushroom growing and see your photos.

There will even be a competition for the biggest mushroom! As well as science projects about how mushrooms work.

If you want to get involved, all you have to do is get your mushroom kit and start growing.

Have fun!
