Versatility of Spent Mushroom Compost

"Spent Mushroom compost" is a scientifically developed recipe of recycled ingredients such as stable bedding, wheat straw, poultry litter and cotton seed hulls which are pasteurised to kill any harmful bacteria.

As mushrooms are a multi-million dollar Australian industry, the compost in which mushrooms are grown is vital. The compost provides the goodness on which mushrooms flourish.

When the mushrooms have finished cropping, what remains is ideal compost for the home garden which can be used as a mulch, soil conditioner, and potting mix additive.

Mushroom compost is also great for:

  • Most flowering plants
  • Trees & shrubs
  • Vegetable gardens and herbs
  • Establishing lawns*
* not recommended for some native plants and acid-loving plants such as azaleas, camellias and rhododendrons.

Mushroom compost also:

  • Provides plant nutrients
  • Helps soil hold water
  • Raises soil pH, and
  • Promotes seedling growth.

A recent three year research program by the Victorian Department of Agriculture and Rural Affairs showed that mushroom compost:

  • Contains almost all nutrients needed for good plant growth
  • Supplies the nutrients slowly
  • Aids seedling emergence
  • Improves the structure of the soil
  • Conserves soil moisture
  • Produces no harmful decomposition products.
