    first off, yes they are safe unless icky pests are in them. second, they will lower your PH, not raise it, and third, you want to lower the PH, not raise it. only a handful of cp's like a high ph.

    It's funny how the acidity rises as the pH falls. We were discussing that humor in a biology group recently. Chemists are backwards.

    - what do you do when your bog is full? you build another. and another. and another. then you buy some pots. and some more. and some more. and some more. then you wonder how much it would cost to rework the hydrology in your yard to place your house on an island. -
