Coffee grind is good for your soil/plants

Post#1 by tim » 29 Jun 2018, 00:00


I read that used coffee grind is great for soil/plants.

It attracts earth worms and earth worms are great gardeners.
And as it decomposes, microbes that break it down releases lots of nitrogen which are good for plants.

So about a month ago, I had a online chat with a long distance friend and told him that how my mom used to own a coffee shop and would dump coffee grind in this rose bush and the roses were super healthy.

So today, my friend is all excited about his coffee grind harvest (by opening the used up Keurig packages) and sent me this photo:

I told him my mom didn't know that earth worms are great gardeners and was surprised when I told her that. She was digging around where i dumped our used coffee grinds and she said she saw huge earth worms hanging around there.

So that's like my highlight of the day, my friend harvesting his coffee grinds.

I didn't know Keurig had grounds in the packs. I thought they were syrup.
Coffee grounds attract the big worms!

Yep just confirmed it with my friend it is Keurig. We just use regular Folgers in a cheap coffee maker so I wasn't sure.

I knew about the coffee grounds used and I've used it for years but I also add a little cinnamon. It's great for plants from time to time.
Thanks Tin. :)

Don’t be afraid to start over. It’s a new chance to rebuild what you want.

My mother and grandmother always put their coffee grounds where they planted flowers, or a garden. There flowers were always large for size and beautiful color. Also, there were always a lot of earthworms for us to get when we went fishing.
