Question by Jessie on 9 November 2015
I feel so bad throwing them in the bin once I’m done with them. Any suggestions?
When planting veggies or flowers that have small seeds – especially carrots! – mix them into the coffee grounds so that the seeds are better spaced when broadcasting or sprinkling down a row. The coffee grounds also keep the goggas from eating the germinated seeds.
Good on lawns.
I use it in my compost.
All those antioxidants do wonders for your garden / worm farm!
Use them in the garden. All plants love coffee
I tap them into my pot plants – perks up the plants and makes a good mulch. The plants seem to like the “kick” but insects don’t enjoy seem to enjoy coffee!
Throw them in the garden (tea bags as well). Since I started that, it seems the moles have disappeared.
Make a body scrub!
Mix with coconut or olive oil, you can also add glycerin if you have it and want a smoother texture, and use in the shower to exfoliate and moisturize :)
Your shower might need a clean afterwards but it’s worth it (and coffee is supposed to be great for treating cellulite!)
Use them as fertiliser on all your plants, especially camellias and azaleas. Don’t throw them away, under any circumstances!
