This is why you should use coffee grounds in your garden


Even a small amount of coffee grounds can work wonders for the plans and crops in your garden. Plants like hydrangeas and rhododendrons love these grounds because they’re a little sour. You can also apply some of the grounds to your vegetable garden. Carrots, pumpkins and tomatoes will especially be able to flourish with some coffee grounds as their fuel.


When you first plant a plant in your garden, you can mix some coffee grounds with the potting soil. Put this is in your planter of choice and then add your plant. Do make sure you don’t use grounds that are already quite old. Coffee grounds get mouldy pretty quickly, so you should use them while they’re still fresh. Got some grounds but don’t need to use them right away? You can keep them for a maximum of a few days in a sealed container.
