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.
- 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.
