This week see’s the launch of our Coffee to Compost scheme at Midsummer place. This involves coffee shop waste turned into compost.
We are giving out free bags of coffee ‘waste’ to all green fingered gardeners, which you can pick up from our coffee cart on the mall from Friday 1st July. These can be used as a natural fertiliser to help your garden look blooming lovely in no time!
Coffee grounds are a natural, long-term way to enrich soil and speed up the composting process, using waste that would otherwise end up in landfill. As they are high in nitrogen, coffee grounds can help with plant growth, particularly for acid-loving plants such as azaleas, hydrangeas, blueberries, and lilies, as well as root crops like carrots or radishes.
See below for some useful tips and tricks on how best to use your coffee grounds, but we advise searching for more detailed advice online to make sure you make the best out of your coffee grounds in a safe way.
Some useful websites we used to find these tips and tricks are:
There were also lots more to read up on, so we recommend having a look before using your coffee grounds.*
