LIFE IS A JOURNEY, ARE YOU READY?

WAKE YOUR PLANTS UP

Every day millions of pots of coffee and tea are brewed, and the millions of pounds of wet grounds, filters and bags thrown in the trash. This is both wasteful and foolish.

Coffee by-products can be used in the garden:
  • Sprinkle used grounds around plants before rain or watering, for a slow-release nitrogen.
  • Add to compost piles to increase nitrogen balance. Coffee filters and teas begs break down rapidly during composting.
  • Dilute with water for a gentle, fast-acting liquid fertilizer. Use about a hlaf-pound can of wet grounds in a five-gallon bucket of water; let sit outdoors to achieve ambient temperature.
  • Mix into soil for houseplants or new vegetable beds.
  • Encircle the base of the plant with coffee grounds to repel pests like slugs and snails.
