Mushroom Compost, Gravel & Mulch
Mushroom compost is a great mulch but is not as long lasting as bark. However, as it breaks down it does improve the soil structure – which bark eventually does too.
Mushroom compost has already been used to grow a crop – mushrooms – and whilst it won’t grow more mushrooms in your garden, it does have some low levels of fertiliser left in it. It comes from local mushroom farms and recycles a waste product very effectively. It is suitable for mulching most garden plants but mushroom compost is unsuitable for lime hating plants such as Rhododendrons, Azaleas, Pieris and summer flowering heathers.
Spent mushroom compost is a low cost mulching material and looks very smart as soon as it is laid.
Gravel & Mulch
Gravel mulches can be used to cover paths inexpensively, to park cars on or to create a planted gravel garden.
We stock four types of gravel mulch and all are available in 20 kg sacks. Each type is also sold at discounted rates for larger quantities. The popular gravels that we offer are Cotswold South Cerney gravel, Plum Slate [20-40 mm], Huntley Wood and Chard Flint.
