My Sweet Peas have been picked over and i have loads of seeds for next year so i want to know if i can compost the plants or do i need to remove all the remaining seed pods first and there is a lot of em



I've never bothered to remove seedpods when I've composted the 'vines'. I do leave the roots in the ground, though, as they are a source of nitrogen.
