Fertilise with Coffee Grounds

Did you know that coffee grounds can be used as a fertiliser in your garden?

We can't promise that your gardening skills will be improved but we are more than happy to give you a bag of our coffee grounds if you would like to try.
 
Coffee grounds can be used for acid-loving plants like Hydrangeas, Azaleas, Rhododendrons and also for some fruit & vegetables such as Blueberries, Carrots & Radishes. 


How to use?

  • Simple add coffee grounds directly to the soil in your garden.
  • You can scratch it into the top couple inches of soil, or just sprinkle the grounds on top and leave it alone.
  • In smaller amounts, especially when mixed with dry materials, coffee grounds will give up their nitrogen, which is the nutrient that produces healthy green growth and strong stems.

Useful facts:

  • Coffee also contains calcium and magnesium - both of which are beneficial to plant health. 
  • The texture of the grounds can also improve drainage and helps with water retention and aeration.
  • The grainy texture of coffee grounds can deter slugs and snails from getting to your flowers and plants, making them excellent organic pesticides.
