* Some invasive species such as tansy ragwort and poison hemlock are too poisonous to compost and/or dangerous to compost. Others such as Japanese knotweed or morning glory/bindweed are able to easily spread via root or stem fragment and can completely contaminate any compost they are put in. Anyone who uses the contaminated compost will get the invasive species. Please landfill these species.
