Any day now, When I Get Around To It, I'm going to put my VFTs and sarrs in the fridge bareroot for dormancy. Being a conservationist sort, I'm wondering if there's any merit in "recycling" the peat moss they're currently in. Could I clean and dry it out by baking it in the oven? I also have access to an autoclave at work...not my preferred option...I'd be hesitant to risk clogging the steam lines with loose peat, and it wouldn't dry it out...but failing all else, it's an option for me.
I don't have a yard or mulch pile or anything like that, so I couldn't recycle it that way.
Any thoughts or experiences? Would the benefits outweigh the risks? Thanks in advance!
