comment Is it possible to recycle a Jack-o'-lantern into compost?
"Put a layer of carbon/soil over the top" - I might add that jack-o-lantern season comes at a time when we're typically raking leaves, so [ideally shredded] leaves would be a great source of carbon to mix with smashed pumpkin. As an aside, the best crop of pumpkins I ever had was a batch of volunteers in the compost pile that I allowed to grow. Those pumpkins loved growing directly in a big heap of garden compost + horse manure.

@user2962794: more dangerous indeed. I'd note that the wikipedia reference for the latent infections dates from 2013, or 2 years after the original answer. I'll remove the "probably only dangerous" qualifier and link to wikipedia

How do you distinguish between E. umbellata and E. multiflora? I see some minor differences in the descriptions e.g. on Wikipedia, but I'm not sure what differences are definitive.
