They are scratching out about a half compost bag of moss per day! If I put this on my compost heap am I at risk of spreading moss to the veg plot in future? 7th March 2014 at 11:19 am #24881 charlesModerator I don’t think so, moss somehow appears wherever conditions are right – damp surface for a few months – whether or not one may have spread anything to encourage it.
