From time to time, garden centres offer mushroom-growing kits complete with compost that has mushroom mycelium. These give a couple of flushes of mushrooms, if correctly treated.

Apart from this, mushroom growing is a specialized activity that requires tightly controlled conditions and experise in compost making and spawning.
