Coffee For Plants?

Coffee For Plants?

Mmmmm coffee. I love coffee, and I have at least one cup a day. You may have heard reports that coffee may be good for you. Hmmmm if it may be good for us how about our plants? Yep. Plants love coffee too and they thrive on it.

Coffee grounds (and brewed coffee) are a source of nitrogen for plants, which is the nutrient that produces healthy green growth and strong stems. Coffee also contains calcium and magnesium -- both of which are beneficial to plant health.

Next time you have a cup of coffee think about giving some to your plants too. If you have any black coffee left in your coffee maker dilute it and water your plants. They will love it if you do this about once a week. Don't throw out those grounds. You can mix those grounds into your compost pile.
