I am starting my first garden and can only find 3 of the 5 recommended composts types. I found mushroom, cow manure and chicken manure composts. What other types can I use and where do you find them? Our local landfill compost is not good to use, It is full of weeds and plastic.

IR:

You have 3 good ones to start with. Composted leaves, grass etc. are good but hard to find.
Look in the Big box stores for something called sledge. From what I have seen on the bag it is a composted natural material usually reeds and such, but, read the bag. Also some of the smaller nurseries will have compost in bulk to load in a pickup. Be sure to ask them what it was before being composted (they may not know). If you cannot find more different types go with what you have. Your garden will be fine.

God Bless, Ward.

Also while at the big box store look for stuff that is marked "for roses" or " for citrus" etc. because its labeled as such doesnt mean thats its only use i found a bage that was marked "for shrubs" and it actualy had 3 diffrent types of composted material in it so now i have 6 instead of 5 lol

Another option someone mentioned in another post is to use the same compost but from different manufacturers. Cow or steer manure, for example, will have different qualities from brand to brand.

It was difficult to find 5 different types of compost. I used the following types in the mix:

- Composted Cow Manure
- Composted Cotton Burrs
- Calloway's Compost Mix (local nursery)
- Mushroom Compost
- Scotchman's Choice Compost

I also added some earthworm castings to each of my mixes as well as some dried molasses to try to keep the fire ants away. I looked all over the place for chicken manure compost but couldn't find any in the Dallas area. I would have used it if I could have found it...
