This amazingly beautiful and ‘robust’ edible fungus is usually  wine red in colour and 5-30cm across, the spores are purple/brown. It likes to grow on straw, compost, sawdust, mulch or wood chips. Contact with soil is beneficial either from underneath or on top of the growing medium.
Yields of many kilograms per square metre are possible if your soil is rich in compost. Spawn can be dug into the garden in prepared plots, and nature takes its course over 3-9 months, or chopped straw or wood chips may be prepared for growing in bags, which should start to fruit 12-20 weeks after preparation.
The spawn is enough to inoculate a square metre of garden, which will then grow out to cover any areas that are nutritious for this aggressive decomposer. Once the Garden Giant is established, you can dig small sections of colonised mulch out and transplant them to new plots.
This fungus will convert organic waste into humus and mushrooms rapidly. 

Best ordered: Spring, summer and early autumn.
