Now Carrying Mushroom Compost

New to Geo Growers and just in time for that fall gardening season is our new Mushroom Compost.

 

Before planting flowerbeds, vegetable gardens, trees, shrubs, or fruit trees – we recommend applying at least a 2 – 3 inch layer of Mushroom Compost on the top of your bed and till it in several inches deep.  Then plant your plants and water them regularly.  If you have plants that are not doing well, you can top-dress with a 1 inch layer and continue watering on a regular basis.  Please use caution when applying as it is high in nutrients and all nutrients are in the available salt forms even though they are from a naturally organic source.

Mushroom compost s is very rich so you do not want to plant directly into the compost.  It is only considered non-burning when you incorporate it into the soil or top-dress existing plants that already have an established root system.  For potted plants, take extreme care to only apply a thin layer on top and make sure to have adequate drainage since mushroom compost can be too rich in available nutrient salts and may burn root systems.
