Chaos fungorum Edible Forest Garden Mix
For natural root growth – the most diverse mycorrhiza mixes available!

Made from 20 painstakingly collected wild edible species from British woodland, this mix will provide suitable mycorrhizal partners for any tree, boosting tree growth, and encouraging the rapid development of a diverse, healthy, living soil. In the long term, given the right environment, these mycorrhizae may also start to form edible mushrooms (Please note, all wild mushrooms, regardless of where they occur, must be properly identified before being eaten!). Contains over 2000 spores per gram mixed with finely graded bio-char from sustainably coppiced British woodland, plus natural additives to encourage mycelial growth – ideal for planting forest gardens, new woodlands, orchards and hedging. 

Planting instructions –
For large bare root or container grown trees sprinkle approximately 20g (2 tablespoons / a small handful) of mix directly into the planting hole when planting into their final position. Take care not to inhale the dust. When planting large numbers of small trees close together (i.e. hedging/new woodland) as little as 2g mix (1 level teaspoon/ a pinch) can be used per tree. 1kg is enough for 50 – 500 trees.

Storage
Keep tighly sealed in a cool dark place. Best results will be had if used within 4-5 months of purchase. If possible we highly recommend storing your mix tightly sealed in the fridge – this will help maintain maximum viability for the longest possible time. Kept sealed in the fridge this mix will remain viable for at least one year.
Please note, this mix is specifically formulated for trees – other plants will benefit from the fungi found in this mix but are unlikely to form edible mushrooms. Not suitable for ericaceous plants or brassicas. For advice on specific plants email jake@chaosfungorum.co.uk
