I've got a bit of the kikuyu grass http://www.weeds.org.au/cgi-bin/weedident.cgi?tpl=plant.tpl&ibra=all&card â7 as well as other weeds in my lawn. The council planted it as the common nature strip grass and some of it has gotten into my garden.
They grow very quickly - and are very resilient. I've been weeding them out- and throwing them into the rubbish bins.
But can I put it into my compost bin- or will the grass roots survive and grow again? How can I make sure that the weeds' roots, runners, and their seeds rot - and don't grow again.
My old gardener was simply in favor of throwing them away - as the laws here now prohibit open fires which meant he couldn't burn the old weeds.
