What are the benefits of using Coffee Grounds in my garden?

Using Coffee Grounds in your garden has multiple benefits such as improving soil structure, releasing essential nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium, and promoting beneficial microbes and mycelium. Over time, they turn into humus, enhancing the overall quality of the soil.

Will using Coffee Grounds affect the pH levels of my soil?

Contrary to some opinions, Coffee Grounds do not reduce the pH levels of your soil. They have a neutral effect on the acidity or alkalinity of the soil.

How do the nutrients in Coffee Grounds breakdown and become available for my plants?

Coffee Grounds break down at a moderate rate, releasing essential nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium. They naturally favour fungal breakdown, which promotes microbial growth and mycelium in your soil mix, eventually turning into humus.

Can I use Coffee Grounds for both indoor and outdoor plants?

Yes, Coffee Grounds can be used for both indoor and outdoor plants. They help improve soil structure and provide essential nutrients, promoting healthy plant growth in various environments.

How much Coffee Grounds should I use in my garden or pots?

There isn't a strict guideline for the quantity of Coffee Grounds to use, but a general rule of thumb is to mix it into your soil or compost at around 10-20%. It's essential to ensure that they are well mixed and distributed, and not applied in thick layers, which could smother plant roots and create compacted soil.

Are Coffee Grounds safe for all types of plants?

Coffee Grounds are generally safe for most types of plants. However, some plants may be sensitive to their nitrogen content. It's always a good idea to test a small portion of the Coffee Grounds with your specific plants before applying it to the entire garden or pot.
