Q.Mushroom mix organic?

Johns added on April 25, 2012 | Answered

I commenced using mushroom mix in my veggie garden. Can you please advise me if it is organic and safe to use? If it is organic, why do I have to use a face mask covering my mouth and nose when spreading it in the garden prior to planting?

Thanking you in anticipation,

Yes, it is organic. Here is more info: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/mushroom-compost.htm

A face mask or nose covering is advised because of the dust and/or any possible mold spore that may be present, which can pose a problem with allergies.
