RE: Mushroom compost

I had not heard there were any salt problems with mushrooms or mushroom
composts.  Hmmmm....  However, you might want to consider a "test" of it in
your yard, planting 1/2 an area with mushroom compost and the other half the

I have used leaf mold for strawberry beds and can attest almost anything
will grow in it.  I like to mix it with my regular compost (from green table
scraps, coffee grinds, garden trimmings, etc.)  and use it in my lasagna
beds, too!  Everything I've used it with has been a very happy grower.  (I

Subject: [CHAT] Mushroom compost

OK, gang, I'm looking for your input.  I was doing some research on the

others claim it has virtually no nutritive value and could pose serious
salt problems in the soil.
What are your experiences/opinions?  
As always, thanks for your help.
