COFFEE GARDEN TIPS

Fertilizer

Coffee grounds provide good nourishment for plants – inside as well as out.

Spread coffee grounds around the plants and water, so the nutrients seep into the soil.

Coffee grounds attract worms

Mix your seeds into radishes or carrots with coffee grounds. It keeps both the insects away but attracts worms that make the soil more oxygenated and fertile.

Keep Spanish slugs and ants away

Keep Spanish Slugs and ants away from the vegetable garden by spreading coffee grounds in the snail trail or around the nest. They do not like the acid from the grounds and will therefore move from out of your garden.

Keep wasps away

Burning coffee grounds is a simple way to keep the wasps away from the terrace.

When you burn a little coffee grounds, the grounds emit a smoke that the wasps don’t like.

Keep cats away from your garden

By spreading coffee grounds in your garden, you can keep cats away – they don’t like the smell of coffee grounds.

Coffee grounds in your flower beds keep cats away for up to a week.

Slippery wooden boards

When algae and snow make your outdoor wooden boards slippery, you can spread coffee grounds to make it easier to stand firm. And if the rain washes the grounds into the garden it doesn’t matter, because then it works as fertilizer.

Spice up the wooden furniture

Spice up your natural-colored wooden furniture with coffee grounds and a good amount of knuckle grease. The wood will get a fresh, new look.
