GREAT MUSHROOM COMPOST - Why it is Sooooo Great! (MB) (S. Bay - Monterey, Santa Cruz - Fremont)

image 1image 2

condition: well-aged

There are many types of compost available. They are NOT all the same. Different producers use differing processes and differing mixes of vegetative materials and additives. Some use chemicals and apply heat to accelerate decomposition. If you buy compost in the bag, check the ingredients, if you can. Generally, the make-up of the compost is not even listed - there are no labeling requirements for compost, top soil, soil mixes, etc. Even if they are listed, notice that the ingredients are not specific -- because the manufacturer uses whatever is available.

- Great Mushroom Compost is organic. The farms are certified by CCOF.
- Great Mushroom Compost is consistent from load to load - you will always know what you are getting; a consistent, well-aged mix of hay, horse manure, peat moss, and coffee grounds/cotton seed hulls
- Great Mushroom Compost is well composted. It looks like dirt and, when held close to your nose, smells like dirt; it does not stink.
- Great Mushroom compost persists in the soil, unlike most other composts, due to its high humus content

"Compost" that stinks, or looks like little bits of ground-up grass, straw, leafs, wood chips, etc. is NOT compost, it is un-decomposed material. Such material is not good for your plants or your soil. If there is vermiculite, perlite, sand, etc. in your "compost", those are fillers that you should not be paying for.

Contact me and I will send you details on what makes for good, quality compost, how to use it, why it is so vital to your garden, and how to get off to a great start if you are new to gardening or starting a new garden.
