  2. The key thing is that the boletus has a mycorrhizaic (symbiotic)
    relationship with hardwood trees so the mushroom roots have to be inserted
    into the soil at the edge of the foliage umbrella. I think planting on a
    lawn would be too difficult because of the mowing – would be better in a
    more semi-wild location.

  3. No, we just bought the boletus (porcini). I know – the site should have an
    English translation for non-Poles. You can always use Google translate for
    some of the Polish text.

  6. They prefer hardwood – oak, beech and some grow near silver birch. However,
    when we pick wild ones we find them among the pine trees so I think it
    could work.

  8. Was the product a blend of eight different mushrooms? I don’t speak polish,
    so I’m having a difficult time figuring out which product to buy.

  9. Thanks for sharing they look just like king boletes. Can the spores be
    spead out in a lawn? If they sprout fast enough maybe the mowing can be
    delayed until they are ready for picking ? Must they be grown near an oak
    tree ?
