One of our most popular composting mulches and a great natural soil improver. Our Premium Mushroom Compost is excellent for breaking up heavy clay soils, adding organic matter to inert sandy soils and for mulching vegetable beds and flower borders.
A spent mushroom compost derived from local mushroom farms, our Mushroom Compost is produced from a mix of peat and well-rotted straw blended with either aged chicken or horse manure. The resultant product is high in organic humus, which naturally improves the chemical and physical properties and long-term performance of all soils, making it a good economical solution for both professional users and discerning gardeners alike.
For general soil improvement, spread a 50mm layer of our Premium Mushroom Compost over the area to be treated, then fork or rotavate in. For very poor and hungry soils, you could consider increasing the application to 75mm or 100mm.
Our Premium Mushroom Compost helps restore the natural balance of soils, providing a healthy rich growing environment.
Please Note: Mushroom Compost is a very rich compost and should be mixed with soil before planting. It is not suitable or recommended for potting, seeding, young plants or to be used as a direct growing medium as results may vary. In these instances, we would recommend our Multipurpose Compost or John Innes for these applications.
Mushroom Compost is a bi-product of the mushroom growing industry. Whilst we test the material regularly, Bury Hill Landscape Supplies does not produce the mushroom compost directly and as such cannot ever guarantee the ingredient, chemical or nutrient composition found in the compost. Mushroom Compost is a natural product, and its colours and textures will vary depending how fresh the compost is. Fresh mushroom compost is lighter in colour with more visible straw which will darken and decompose naturally over time. On very rare occasions our Mushroom Compost can contain trace amounts of plastic which are unavoidable and come in directly from the Mushroom Farming process.
