A compost comprising of wheat straw, horse and chicken manure, which is free of weeds and pathogens. Mushroom compost is an excellent soil conditioner, especially on a heavy clay soil. It improves the soil structure by creating larger pore spaces and increasing the organic matter content, which in turn improves oxygen diffusion and water holding capacity encouraging root growth. It has a slow release fertilizing effect and contains most of the major and minor nutrients. Mushroom compost works well both as a mulch and dug over into the soil. It is best applied around early spring, on an annual basis, before planting so that the growing plants can make the most of it.

Note: Mushroom compost slightly increases the pH of soil and is therefore unsuitable for ericaceous plants (e.g. Camellias and azaleas).

What our customers say

My sister in law in Toronto called a local garden centre in Twickenham to try and order a memorial gift for me. They were really unhelpful and so when she found Sempervirens via Google and called you she was really surprised to find not only were you polite and helpful but really friendly as well. She was happy to accept your offer that you would choose something suitable and deliver the following Monday. She was even happier when I thanked her for such a lovely gift, a beautiful Ceanothus specimen covered in buds ready to bloom (with price tag on) so she knew you had not taken advantage of her trust. Your delivery man was helpful and polite as well.

Well done Sempervirens. You will certainly have my custom from now on.
