I know seeds sprout in compost, but will they grow?
I use compost as a soil amendment and as mulch to suppress weeds. Is it safe to assume: 1) that compost is compost and soil is soil, 2) over time compost worked into the soil becomes soil--over time being the operational concept here, and, 3) you can't really grow plants in compost even if the seeds do sprout.
Are these accurate conclusions? And if so, do the seeds sprout simply because of the moisture? If you want them to grow into a healthy plant (just for fun since we seldom know what they are), replant them in soil?
