Coffee Grounds & Tea Leaves - Good for your Garden

Coffee & Tea.jpg

Don’t toss those coffee grounds and tea leaves in the trash. Recycle them by layering them in your compost pile. Or add a thin layer of coffee grounds or tea leaves directly to your garden beds. They are not fertilizer but help improve your soil by adding microbes and organic matter as they break down.  

I used to have a problem with slugs eating my hostas until I started putting coffee grounds around the base of the plants.
