Composting and Japanese stilt grass

Asked January 16, 2018, 12:14 PM EST

The leaves that I am considering putting in my tumbler compost bin are on top of a bed of (dormant or dead) Japanese stilt grass. If I compost those leaves, am I just spreading the grass seed?

If the stiltgrass was in seed it is possible that you can spread the seed. The seed can remain viable for 5 years or so.
You can place in black trash bags and send to the landfill.
