Looking for something to supercharge your garden soil? Mushroom compost might be your best bet. Despite its slightly misleading name, mushroom compost isn’t comprised of fungi. Instead, it’s an inexpensive byproduct of the mushroom-growing process.
Growers use organic materials like straw, peat, gypsum, manure, corn cobs, poultry and other organic materials to create a nutrient-rich compost that, when used correctly, can greatly improve growing conditions in your garden.
