What Vegetables Like Mushroom Compost?

Mushroom compost is a beneficial soil amendment for some vegetables and it can help them have a healthier, more abundant harvest. Here are some vegetables that love mushroom compost:

Cool-Season Vegetables

  • Cabbage
  • Kale
  • Spinach
  • Broccoli
  • Radish

Warm-Season Vegetables

  • Tomatoes
  • Peppers
  • Eggplant
  • Cucumbers
  • Squash

Mushroom compost can be used for many types of vegetables, but it is best to use it in moderation. Too much compost can cause too much nitrogen in the soil and can lead to leggy or poor-tasting vegetables. The best way to use mushroom compost is to mix it with existing soil at a rate of 20-25% compost to existing soil, and to make sure it is evenly distributed before planting.

Adding compost to your garden is a great way to introduce beneficial organisms, improve water retention, and provide vital nutrients to your vegetables to help them thrive throughout the growing season.

Happy Planting!
