of tea waste and coffee grounds for plants and garden. 1. As An excellent ORGANIC FERTILIZER. The tea and coffee wastes contain tannic acid
and other nutrients. Best use is on flowering plants like the rose
which can increase flowering in these plants both in quality and quantity. Lets first quickly list out at all the other
benefits first, then at the end will discuss on how to make this fertilizer and how to
use it. 2. In Composting: Best used in vermicomposting,
because the worms love these and digest them fast to produce results fast. That means it speeds up the process of vermicomposting. Most of the tea bags can be dropped into the
compost bin as it is, because they are made up of bio-degradable material, exception is
polypropylene bags which look like plastic. 3. Weed suppression : Tea bags waste also helps
prevent growth of unwanted plants that is weeds if sprinkled around your plants. 4. Keep your pets like Cats away from your plants
� like you can stop them from urinating on your favourite plants � both indoors
as well as outdoor plants. 5. Drive away Certain pests like the root maggots,
slugs, snails and cockroaches. 6. Offer a Slightly Acidic PH to acid loving
plants. It slightly lowers the soil PH due to its
tannic acid content and hence benefit acid loving plants. 7. Making a well drained potting mix: You can
used this dried tea waste as an alternative to perlite and vermiculite as it also helps
in moisture retention and makes a well draining soil for container gardening. You can watch my separate video on What is
Perlite and Vermiculite from a link at top right corner of this video. Okay, Now How to make this awesome tea waste
fertilizer for rose and other flowering plants and how much to offer them. For this you start collecting the used tea
or coffee grounds in a container and then rinse in water and dry this in sunlight for
1 or 2 days and then store this in a dry container. That�s it, you can now start offering this
to your plants once every 15 days, like about 4 � 5 teaspoons onto the soil after raking
the soil thoroughly. This will boost flowering and overall health
of the plants. One more bonus tip here is: You can make this
mix more special and powerful just like a Multi-vitamin for your plants: by mixing some
powdered iron tablets + few calcium tablets available from your local pharmacy. You can also add egg shell powder as a substitute
for calcium. Please also watch my video on egg shell uses
in gardening from the link at top right corner of this video. So there we have it folks, that was our quick
