Black Forest compost

Post  Kate888 on 3/20/2012, 10:45 am

I have purchased some compost already. Chickedy-doo-doo. A cow manure and a "premium" cow manure.

I was looking at composts at Lowe's yesterday to find more. They had humus (when I asked a worker what was in it she said human waste, What? LOL) but the bag indicates it includes peat. They also had something called Black Forest but no ingredients listed at all. I think it's a mushroom compost. Does anyone know if this is good or does it have peat?

Black Forest® Organic Compost
A blend of forest humus (redwood and fir bark) composted and screened to a uniform 1/4" minus size. Fortified with .5% nitrogen and .08% Iron.



It has a lot of bark in it, so it would not be a great component of MM.
