Mushroom Compost is both a perfect solution to low quality topsoil, and a great addition to high quality topsoil. It is an environmentally safe, organic mixture formulated for modern mushroom production. The compost is formed from a mixture containing straw and stable bedding, which is fortified with organic supplements such as peat moss, cocoa bean shells, soybeans, and cottonseed meal. After the mushrooms are harvested, the material is called “spent” and the compost is then screened to remove bulk materials. The screened final product arrives at Tameling’s ready for sale.
Major uses of Mushroom Compost:
- Used for generations as a soil ameliorant to improve soil tilth and to provide nutrients
- Provides an excellent growing media as a plant bed mix, as a top dressing to beds, as a mulch around plants, or as an aid in lawn installation
