Mushroom compost is one of the best all 'rounder styles of mulch for gardeners.

You'll love that it is environmentally friendly, organic, makes use of recycled waste, and saves water.

You can choose from a mountain of this beautiful product in the yard at the moment.

You can see the dense richness and texture of it — it's almost good enough to eat!

Like chocolate cake for your soil!

Applying mushroom compost to your garden beds could not be simpler:

  • 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 your seeds or transplant the plants as desired
  • Give it a great start with a good water

    Incredibly, mushroom compost can store up to 70% of its own weight in water! It is a powerhouse product that also improves the transmission of water through the soil.

    It helps to keep the soil cooler in warmer weather, and increases soil resistance to both wind and water erosion. Just perfect really.

    Mushroom compost is a scientifically developed recipe of recycled organic ingredients.

    For those who enjoy a few facts about these things, mushroom compost contains products such as stable bedding (including manure), wheat straw, poultry litter and cotton seed hulls which are pasteurised to kill any harmful bacteria.

    In fact, it contains almost all nutrients needed for good plant growth. Mushroom compost delivers the nutrients slowly, which helps seedling emergence.

    It dramatically improves the structure of the soil to conserve soil moisture, and produces no harmful decomposition products Mushroom compost is suitable for most flowering plants, trees and shrubs, vegetable gardens and herbs and establishing lawns.

    However, it is not recommended for some native plants and acid-loving plants such as azaleas, camellias and rhododendrons.

    Also, be aware that it can make your fur babies sick if they eat it! Right now, as we mentioned, we have a huge pile of mushroom compost in the yard at the moment, which we are selling for $50m3 (it's normally $59m3), while stocks last, some conditions apply.
