I live in an area where invasives are spread from car tires. I usually walk the roads around my house and pull invasives like purple loosestrife and stick them in black garbage bags. There is also a flood control dike behind my house (not immediately adjacent, but close) which is infested with invasives.
According to a few internet sources, if I want to compost invasives, I stuff them in garbage bags or sealed containers, pour some water over the weeds, and leave the garbage bags in full sunlight for two months. THen compost normally. I am trying it out this summer. But...
Has anyone in this forum composted invasives? I ask here because our composting season is shorter. Is there anything I haven't mentioned that I should be doing? I am assuming the water in conjunction with the heat of the bag rots the seeds.
