    Not sure how often you get into the Valley, so if you are interested I can get the seeds (there are a few places in Inala that have very interesting seeds that I have never heard of...) and give them to Christopher at the Garden Visit on 7th November.

    If there is anything else specific you were looking for let me know the name and I can see if they have it.

    Sorry I missed your message here on this forum until now. The order you remembered for the no dig garden was right. Essentially all the new nutrients under the paper - then thick layer of seed free mulch on top. Hope you tried it and it is working OK.
  • Hi Addy,

    We generally harvest 3-4 kilos over 3 flushes of mushrooms. It will depend on how big you grow your mushrooms before harvesting.
