I've been reading about how cat/dog hair makes good mulch/insulation for soil, and since bell pepper seeds need higher temps to germinate, this combination sounded ideal as our nights are still a bit too cool for the seeds. I just had some concerns.
1) Will the hair prevent the seeds sprouting since it will basically be a fine mesh covering the soil?
2) Will the hair go 'bad' in any way if it is damp for a long time? Will that effect the soil/seeds?
