Request: Newly Cut Logs for Mushroom Growing (CT14) - I am going to have a go at growing some edible mushrooms from dowels .... so I need to find some suitable logs to use. The instructions say ... "Logs should be cut from healthy trees during the dormant season. Preferably you should use hard wood logs for mushroom growing - oak, beech, birch, hazel, willow etc; sycamore, apple and ash are not recommended. The log should have a diameter of about 10-15cm." Can anyone help me please ? Are there any tree fellers that would have suitable branches/logs that we could maybe have - as not much use for logs as probably too small as logs for burning Thanks, Gill

Offer: Recliner Chair (CT14) Gifted - Recliner Armchair - beige fabric. Was my Dad's but he has now got a riser/recliner chair. It comes complete with what we called wooden skids - we made these to raise the chair up to make getting in and out of it easier for my Dad - they raise the seating position by about 5 inches.(The wheels on the chair fit securely in the little cups in the skids) The chair has a lever on the side that allows you to put the leg support up to rest your legs on and reclines (not shown in pictures due to space limitations in my garage... but fully working). Any questions - please ask. Thanks Gill
