I read that sunflower plants are excellent for the compost pile, so decided if they are the hulls and leftover seeds from bird feeding would be too. My sister said she thought the seeds were bad for compost. Any thoughs on this?
Once they are broken down can seeds sprout then? Sounds like they might be good for mulch between raised beds! Thanksmistletoad said:The hulls of sunflower seeds are alleopathic which prevents other plants from sprouting. Once completely composted they should do no harm, but you might have to wait longer before using your compost to make sure they are fully broken down.
