Coffee is a lifestyle and part of daily routines the world over. That means there are a lot of leftover coffee grounds to keep our world population alert and moving throughout the day.
Did you know that those coffee grounds are brown “gold” for the garden? Here are a few uses:
- Plant food for blueberries, citrus trees, hydrangeas and rose bushes which all can benefit from coffee grounds.
- Mulch the grounds around your plants. Coffee grounds are high in nitrogen and will help your veggies grow.
- Compost the grounds in any compost pile. Your composting worms will love your coffee grounds and you can throw in the coffee filter too.
- Pest Control for those pesky slugs, snails and ants, since they don’t like being on or around coffee grounds.
Don’t drink coffee? Ask your neighbors, friends and family for their leftover coffee grounds. You can even ask your local Starbucks or other coffee shop for their leftovers.
Sip away, it’s great for your garden too. – GreenUp! Guy
