Coffee grounds
« on: March 07, 2009, 13:01 »
I have been saving these for some time.  I have tons of the stuff because hubby is a real coffee addict and now want to know how to use it.  It is in individual tubs (they used to hold milk shake mix).

My new lottie has currant bushes, raspberry canes, gooseberries strawberries and some fruit trees.

I plan to grow mainly salad leaves, spring onions, peas, mange tout and beans.

I am also doing a few flowers: sweet peas, stock and allysum.

Which would you use the coffee grounds on?

I use coffee grounds from a local coffee shop to feed my current , blueberry  and gooseberries bushes. Up to 10 L a time.

Coffee ground can be slightly acidic so I thought the acid loving fruit  bushes would like it. I also feed my lawn and heather with it.

I just put any coffee grounds I have straight on to the compost heap.

Mine go on allium beds before they get planted up.
