Use Your Old Coffee Grounds in the Garden.

Are you a big coffee drinker? If you are, you will have used coffee grounds. Don't throw them away...used them in the garden.
There are many ways to use them. Camellias, hydrangeas, and roses are all nitrogen loving plants so the coffee grounds help.
The grounds are also a great deterrent for slugs and snails around hostas and other plants that the pests love.

    coffee has a good deal of potassium in it. as does bananas, and potatoes.. kale is higher in magnesium, when it gets bitter compost it. hi phosphorus foods are the meats and nuts, and not generally used in compost.
