Spores are growing, fungus is thriving and large mushrooms are starting to materialise in the kitchen. No we're not talking about a filthy and neglected student pigsty. This time it's on purpose – we're talking about The Kitchen Mushroom Garden.
Thoughtfully cultivated using the up-cycled coffee grounds from one hundred espressos, this unusual kit is a simple, fun and unique way to grow mushrooms in your own home (whilst doing your bit to save the planet). After just two weeks you'll have a flourishing bouquet of tasty Oyster mushrooms, doubling in size each day and ripe for the picking.
Don't have mushroom in your kitchen? Not a problem. The container takes up very little space and is perfect for garden-deprived city dwellers.
Best of all, once you’ve finished sprouting your shrooms, you’re left with a powerful mushroom-enriched compost. Just empty out the growbag, break it up and sprinkle into houseplants or onto flowerbeds for them to enjoy too!
Fungi/Fun Guy pun left out much against better will
Upcycling is undoubtedly the new Recycling
Open up the grow bag within one month of purchase. Mushrooms take around two weeks to grow so please bear all of this in mind when purchasing

This is an amazing gift for pretty much anyone!
I bought one in November for a friend and saw her last week - she was raving about it - it's simple to use, reliable (even she managed to grow it and she's certainly not got green fingers!)and the mushrooms magicked themselves out of the box after 7 days!
My go to gift from now on! Yaz, London - 28th March 2014

Despite it looking like a whole new organism ready for scientific study, this is an ideal present for a food lover and wannabe-chef. Emma, Portsmouth, UK - 2nd December 2013
