I'm not sure what you mean by 'spent peat compost', do you mean previously used peat based potting compost? And what will you be using the mushroom compost for?

the mushroom compost you've got is meant to be used on open ground, on your borders and beds, and isn't suitable for compost in pots and tubs - for those you need potting compost. You can also put the spent peat potting compost on the borders.
