7 Ways to Use Coffee Grounds in the Garden

Here are 7 ways how to use coffee grounds in your garden. You may be amazed at how versatile this item is!


1. Composting


Add coffee grounds to your composting bin. They’re a valuable source of nitrogen.


2. Pest Control


A barrier of coffee grounds around the plants may protect them from slugs and snails.


3. Cat Repellent


Put coffee grounds in the soil to keep cats away from digging in your garden.


4. Acid-Loving Plants


Place coffee grounds around the soil of your acid-loving plants such as roses, rhododendrons, fothergillas, holly, gardenias and so on. Coffee grounds increase acidity and nutrients in the soil.


5. Easy Fertilizer


Add 2 cups of coffee grounds to a 5 gallon bucket of water and allow it to steep overnight. Mixing these two ingredients is one of the simplest ways to make your own homemade fertilizer.


6. Mulch


Using coffee grounds as a mulch can help controlling weeds and keep your vegetable plants more hydrated during the heat of the day.


7. Boost Carrot & Radish Harvest


Double your harvest of carrot and radish, mixing your carrot and radish seeds liberally with coffee grounds.
