Q. Using Coffee Grounds in Garden

I understand that coffee grounds are good for plants. . . . all plants? Also what is the best way to use coffee grounds in the garden.

Yes, coffee grounds are good for the garden. Some people add them to their compost, others use them for vermicomposting (composting with worms) and others use them straight into the soil. All are great ways to use them.

They are good for all plants. Acid loving plants do best with unwashed grounds, but rinsing them makes them ok for all plants.

How you use them is really a personal preference. Here is an article on using them in the garden that will help you decide which methods are best for you.:

For a veggie garden, compost or rotted manure will help with the nitrogen. This article will give you some more ideas on raising the nitrogen in the soil: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/understanding-nitrogen-requirements-for-plants.htm

You want to use it as the plant mature. When they are seedlings, too much fertilizer can"burn" the seedlings. Waiting until the plants are a bit older is beneficial.

Q. Adding Nitrogen to Garden Soil

I have tested my soil and the nitrogen level is very low. What can I add to the soil to improve this problem? I want to plant my vegetables in about six weeks. Is blood meal safe?

Answered by

Blood meal, which is essentially dried blood, is used often in the garden as a fertilizer for adding nitrogen to the soil (https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/blood-meal-fertilizer.htm), so using it is helpful in the garden).

There is one thing to consider though. With blood meal, you can have issues with animals being attracted by the scent and rooting around where the blood meal is spread.

The following article should also be of some help to you: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/nitrogen-plant-fertilizer.htm
