Earth Cycle’s Spent Mushroom Compost is a slow-release nourishing fertiliser which provides high levels of phosphate, potassium, calcium, and magnesium and is great for growing vegetables, particularly brassicas due to its slightly alkaline properties.

As a by-product of mushroom farming, Earth Cycle’s Spent Mushroom Compost is a slow-release nourishing fertiliser which provides high levels of phosphate, potassium, calcium, and magnesium and is great for growing vegetables, particularly brassicas due to its slightly alkaline properties. It is best used for non-acidic plants but is very useful for most vegetables which like a richer soil.

Directions for Use

Vegetable Patches

  • For brassicas, peas, beans or sweet peas, dig and cover the bottom of a trench with our Mushroom Compost, then fill the trench with a mix of one part mushroom compost and two parts soil.
  • For planting cucumbers, tomatoes and other vegetables, fill the hole with a mix of one part Mushroom Compost and two parts soil.

Borders

  • Pre-dressing flower beds with our Mushroom Compost will give better blooms. Apply a 50mm (2”) layer and gently fork in or leave as a mulch. Due to it’s slightly alkaline properties, Mushroom Compost is not recommended for use on acid loving ericaceous plants, such as rhododendrons.

Roses, Trees and Shrubs

  • Dig a hole twice the diameter of the root-ball; at least 30cm (1 ft) if planting a bare root
  • Mix one part of our Mushroom Compost to two parts of soil
  • Place some of the mix in the bottom of the hole and refill around the roots
  • Firm in and water well
  • Continue to water well during the first season
