Question by Amber: can i add coffee grounds to my vegetable garden?
I have a small porch garden. I have small pots with my Veggies growing. I am new to gardening, i have been reading alot about coffee grounds and how they are good for plants. I just need to know if it would be a good idea to mix some used ground in the top soil of my plants? Im growing pumpkins,cucumber,zucchini,carrots and raspberries also a window herb garden. All my plants have sprouted.
Answer by FarmCzar
All of these plants will thrive with coffee grounds added to the soil. Place them in a ring around the plant 3-4″ out from the stem, and mix them into the top inch or so of soil. If you just pile them on top, they may mold; mixing them into the soil helps them break down and release their nutrients sooner.
