As long as you can ensure that no chemicals have been used, they will be fine. However, if you can’t verify the source of the gin trash, you may want to avoid using it on edible plants. Many cotton growers use powerful chemicals, which may still remain in a portion of the compost. Otherwise, use the compost as you would any soil amendment.
