Mushroom Compost

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.

Try mushroom compost on your favorite garden plants...your plants will just love it!
