If you've arrived at this page thinking that Mushroom compost is made from
decomposed mushrooms, you're in for a surprise. Most of us made this same
mistake...once. Then, we learned what it is really made of, and what
a great soil medium it is.
Mushroom compost, also called mushroom soil, is the soil medium commercial
growers use to grow mushrooms. After they have used it, mushroom farmers
have two choices: either toss it out, or.... sell it to you. Gardeners highly
value mushroom compost, as a great soil conditioner or amendment.
Mushroom soil is specifically formulated. It includes: wheat straw, hay,
corn cobs, cottonseed hulls, gypsum and chicken manure. A mixture of these
ingredients is then steam pastuerized. This kills bacteria, mold spores,
weed seeds and insects, making it very clean and sterile. The soil is then
spread out on a bed and topped off with a layer of spaghnum peat moss with
some ground limestone.
After growing mushrooms in this organic, rich, slow release soil, it is packaged
up and sold to home gardeners as mushroom compost.
