SPAWN

The gardener uses this term in several ways. The tiny corms, cormlets or cormels which form round the normal large gladiolus corms are referred to as spawn. They can be grown on to make flowering size corms. Mushroom spawn comprises the mycelium or thread-like growth of the mushroom, produced in various ways, e.g. in a brick containing suitable compost.
