Plant in coffee cupA huge amount of coffee is consumed daily in almost every country in the world. This results in a huge amount of spent coffee grounds tossed in the garbage or washed down the sink.

Why not use it as fertilizer? Lab tests show that coffee grounds contain useful amounts of phosphorus and potassium, are a low-level source of nitrogen and also contain minor amounts of calcium, magnesium, copper, and other trace minerals, carbohydrates, sugars, some vitamins, and some caffeine. Perfect for your garden!

Coffee grounds are particularly good for acid-loving plants, like tomatoes, roses, azaleas, blueberries, evergreens, camellias, avocados, and some fruit trees.

But you can use coffee grounds for most plants as the acid level is not as high as you would think as a substantial amount of the ‘acid’ is cooked out of the coffee during the brewing process. Just reduce the amount of grounds used for other plants.

Mix about 250g of damp grounds in a 20lt drum of water; let it sit outdoors to get to air temperature and you have a liquid fertilizer.

Dry the liquid in the oven (on a big oven tray) and apart from getting that great coffee smell around the house you get a fertilizer you can sprinkle around the base of your plants.

You can also just dig the damp coffee grounds into heavy alkali soil to break it down and encourage earthworms into your garden. Avoid dumping the grounds in clumps as it can get a bit moldy sitting in lumps on top of the soil.

The coffee grounds can also be mixed into your compost heap with crushed eggshells to deter snails.

Like any type of fertilizer, just don’t overdo it and use in moderation. As a home experiment, sprinkle some around some of your tomato plants, and taste the difference between the tomatoes from the treated and those from the untreated plants.

I am curious to find out what blog system you happen to be using?
I'm experiencing some minor security issues with my latest website and I would like to find something more risk-free.

Do you have any recommendations ?
