Mushroom Compost is the Organic Mulch

2 min read

There are so many reasons why mushroom compost is the perfect mulch choice for your garden beds. For a start, it is environmentally friendly. Mushroom compost is an organic product which both recycles waste and saves water. According to Paul Broad, Sydney Water Managing Director, "Mulching your garden is equivalent to halving your weekly watering. It means you can have both a lush garden and practice water conservation."

Mushroom compost stores up to 70% of its own weight in water, and improves the transmission of water through the soil. Mushroom compost keeps soil cooler in warmer weather and increases soil resistance to both wind and water erosion.

Mushroom compost is a scientifically developed recipe of recycled organic ingredients such as: stable bedding (including manure), wheat straw, poultry litter and cotton seed hulls which are pasteurised to kill any harmful bacteria. It contains almost all of the nutrients needed for good plant growth and these are released slowly through the soil. Mushroom compost aids seedling emergence and improves the structure of the soil. Finally, it produces no harmful decomposition products

Mushroom compost is suitable for most flowering plants, trees and shrubs, vegetable gardens and herbs, and establishing lawns.
It is not recommended for some native plants and acid-loving plants such as azaleas, camellias and rhododendrons.

But what is the best way to use Mushroom Compost in your garden?

  • Spread mushroom compost on the soil surface 
  • Incorporate the compost into the top 10 to 30cm of soil
. 
  • Allow about 1 week for compost to settle and blend with the soil. 
  • Sow the seeds or transplant the plants
.
  • Water well initially.
