A by-product of the mushroom growing industry. 

Mushroom compost is ideal for increasing the fertility of your garden soil. It is weed, pesticide and disease free. The basic ingredients of this compost are horse manure, poultry manure and wheat straw, during composting the temperature of the material is allowed to rise to 65c which pasteurizes the compost.

A highly effective soil conditioner for improving structure in heavy clay soils and adding humus to sandy and chalky soils. 

Recommended rate of use for general soil improvement a 50mm layer should be spread over the area to be treated, then forked or rotavated in. A 75mm layer could be considered with very poor soils. 

The mushroom is a choosy feeder and after cultivation a high level of nutrient remains in the compost which is available to green plants. After this the selected mushroom spawn is added to the compost and left to grow throughout the material. Cropping takes place over several weeks after which the compost is steam sterilized prior to its removal from the mushroom farm. Before collection from the mushroom farm, the compost is steam sterilised by the mushroom grower to guarantee that it contains no pests, diseases or weed seed. The material is approximately neutral with a pH of 6.3 to 6.8. It is a first class soil conditioner for all types of soil.
