As mushroom compost is alkaline in nature you should avoid using it around ericaceous (acid-loving) plants. Mushroom compost is excellent in the vegetable garden, as vegetable crops usually grow best when the soil is not acid. And alkaline brassicas (cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, kohlrabi) are less likely to be infected by clubroot disease.
A 50mm layer should be spread over the area to be treated, then forked or rotavated in. A 75mm layer could be considered with very poor soils.
