I use compost on everything in my garden, including my annual flowers. It helps all plants. That's why they call it black gold.

Hi,
I fear there may be confusion about whether you mean bagged potting mix, which it seems is called compost in some countries (England..?) and made moslty of peat moss, or if you mean compost as most Americans call it, the stuff made by letting leaves and grass and manure sit in piles and get decomposed.

Compost in the second definition, is almost always very good for any garden. As Dasiy and gardenfish have said.
Plant it and they will come.
