Can you compost the leaves from a bird of paradise plant, or are they too hard



If you live in an area with frost, especially heavy frost, then you can compost this. The cold weather seems to help breakdown the structure into mush.

I live in an area with no frost, and they compost just fine. What helps is to snip the center tough part into smaller pieces so it rots down faster.
