October is also a great time to “transplant” mushrooms to a new spot.
This might be to expand your present patch or gather mushrooms
from an undesirable place and move them to a desirable place.
When you find wild mushrooms that are old or just in the wrong place, pick them up and move them to a new place. Choose a spot that you have access too and throw them there to survive on their own. My favorite way is to hold them just like they grow and step them into the ground! This places the stem right in the ground and the cap protects and provides added spores to help the mycelium get started. This is what I call the poor boy method, and it does not always work, but it is cheap and it has worked for me many times!
