ReUse: Coffee Grounds

Reuse: coffee grounds | the white dahliaWe all drink coffee on a daily basis – and what happens to all the grounds once we’re done?

Most grounds are tossed in the garbage or down the sink drain. But why not add them to your garden and house plants to help them thrive?? Yes, you can actually do this without the whole mess of composting!

Coffee grounds are particularly good for acid loving plants such as: roses, hydrangea, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, tomatoes –  the list goes on and on!

Okay, so what do you do?

Once your coffee is made and you’re ready to dump the grounds – DONT!
Keep the grounds in a bowl or bucket until they are dried out completely (this may take a few days to a week)
When the grounds are dry sprinkle them on top of the plants soil, then moisten the soil. Its THAT easy! As you water the plant, the grounds will seep into the soil. We recommend applying the coffee grounds no more that once a month – don’t over do it.

Will you try using coffee grounds in your garden?? Let us know your attempts and results!
