|I have many plants I never got around to planting. I was going to sink them in soil. Then I thought sinking them in a new compost pile would be easier. However, if the pile goes hot, won't that harm the plants?
Always looking for interesting plants for pollinators and food! Bonus points for highly, and pleasantly scented plants.

|Yes, if your compost piles get very hot it would. I have done it before , but you have to monitor the seeds or plants closely.|

|If you're in a place with a lot of tree leaves, you could make a pile that won't get hot.
