Mushroom-Growing and Mushroom Insects and Their Control

A. M. Bottomley

This vintage book contains a comprehensive guide to cultivating mushrooms, with historical information, step-by-step instructions, handy tips, and much more. Profusely illustrated and full of useful information, "Mushroom-Growing and Mushroom Insects And Their Control" is highly recommended for those with a practical interest in growing mushrooms and would make for a worthy addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: "Description of Mushrooms", "History of the Mushroom-Growing Industry", "Requirements for Mushroom Cultivation", "Spawn", "Manure", "Suitable Growing Places", "Special Houses", "Mushroom Beds", "Preparation of Beds", "Care of Beds", "Period of Production", "Making of Crops", "Aftercare of Beds", etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on mushrooms.
