Why use mushroom compost?
Mushroom compost is excellent for soil modification as it can radically enhance plant growth, even in the deprived type of soils. This is due to the fact that most of the amended compost serves effectively to improve the clay soil structure, increase soil fertility and lessen the chances of surface crusting as well as compaction. It can also help to improve drainage and ensure that the most natural nutrients are provided to plants which automatically minimizes the need to use fertiliser. Overall, this form of compost is highly beneficial to the soil quality.
