Was just wondering if anyone knew about using mushroom soil to grow ginseng along with the regular soil in your garden as well as composted leaves and twigs and various other woodsy ingredients, if anyone has any ideas please let me know, Thank You.
If you have poor soil conditions I would think mixing spent mushroom soil along with mulched leaves and tilling it in to a depth of 3 inches may provide some good soil. I would consider adding some worm castings as well. Worm castings are a great soil amendment and it has the ability to fight disease. I have not used it yet but have been studying up on it. I am going to try it soon.
Yea worm castings are pretty high in nitrogen for sure. I have read where they help control disease though. Here is an article below that touches on that. If I were to use worm castings I think I would make a tea out of it and spray it on the plant in a small area to see if it does anything beneficial.
