Probably not. Chicken is so powerful I use a lesser amount of it than some of the others. Worm castings also. The important thing is to have the 5 for a variety of levels of nutrients are in each different type. And if you happen to find a new type after making your beds, add it to the replenishment blend. I keep a bin of replenishment blend out by the garden for 2nd plantings and top dressing a long growing plant that might need a midsummer boost.

Ideally equal parts by volume of five different types composts ( use a bucket for measuring it out )
Be careful with the mushroom compost for it may well contain igh levels of lime ( to get the heat up in the compost ) TOO MUCH WILL GIVE YOUR BED CHLOROSIS OF LIME which will stunt plants and turn leaves a yellowish green if it does not actually kill them .

Is there a way to correct the balance? Actually that has already occured with the beans that I have growing. Their leaves are pale/yellowish green and they're dying. The blackeyed peas appear to be doing fine. I've been waiting for the heat of the summer to pass before I planted anything else. Here in Central Florida we've been having really hot and humid days. Just as everyone has, so I wanted to wait until September to plant.
