Mushroom Compost

Following my email to members earlier this year I made a bulk purchase of 75L bags of mushroom compost, based on the quantity pre-ordered. Approximately 20 bags remain after fulfilling these orders and they have been placed into general stock. They may be purchased at £3.40 per bag.

It is a useful soil conditioner, but is not recommended for ericaceous plants or fruit bushes as it contains a high percentage of chalk. More information is available here:
