Mushroom Manure

Mushroom manure consists of a basic mix of straw and animal manure. It can be used to mulch around perennials, trees and shrubs and for flowers and vegetables. It should be mixed thoroughly with existing garden soil, or add a small amount to a container and mix well before planting.
