Mushroom Compost
As you may be aware Janet Cloke sourced a supplier of mushroom compost and purchased a quantity to fill specific orders from members. To obtain a useful bulk discount an extra pallet-load was ordered and this is available to members to buy from stock, £3.15 per 75L bag.

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