Linda and others,
we have a lot of mushroom soil, as it's called here in PA, and it's 
great for non-beardeds, but usually high in nitrogen for about a 
year, so keep it off of tb's. I saw an older Mennonite lady mulch an 
older cultivar of tb's with it and cause them to rot.

Always check the pH before using it. I got a tractor-trailor load 
last year, and the pH was very low, about 4.5. Some people lime it 
heavily before delivering it. Larry Westfall told me he used it once 
on Japs, they declined, and he checked the pH-it was about 8.0, as it 
had been over limed.
