Spring has finally arrived and we all look forward to every sunny day in the garden. The more diligent we are in the garden now, the better it will develop and the happier our eyes will be later. In today’s post we would like to remember an old, effective and thoroughly biological gardening technique. Many gardeners know that coffee grounds can be used as fertilizer for roses. In the following we will tell you how to prepare the fertilizer yourself and how to work it into the soil. Coffee cheers us up quickly and effectively. The plants that we fertilize with coffee grounds are not much different. The coffee changes the pH of the soil and thus supports the development and growth of the roses. You will now find out how everything works well and correctly.
Coffee grounds as fertilizer for roses Garden maintenance can also be environmentally friendly and economical
Coffee grounds as fertilizer for roses – ecological, sustainable and completely free
Fertilizing with coffee brings important nutrients to the roots, such as nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus. Simply put the grounds on a baking tray after drinking coffee and wait until a small amount has collected after a few days. The coffee grounds should be well dried and so sprinkled over the roots of the plants. Rub the coffee grounds by hand, otherwise they will form a crust on the surface that will quickly begin to mold. Exactly the same thing can happen if you use fresh coffee grounds. Every four weeks the roses could use a fresh coffee grounds kick. You can work the soil even better with a garden claw or a hoe, so that the important nutrients can find their way more easily to the roots of the roses. Make sure there are no spring flowers such as tulips or daffodils near the roses, as they don’t like acidic soil and can suffer greatly from it.
The coffee grounds clean the soil and stimulate the growth and development of the roses
If you fertilize with coffee grounds, you should be sure that the mass is completely dry first, otherwise the soil can start to mold

Why should we prefer coffee grounds as fertilizer for roses?
The roses grow and thrive on the soil for much longer than there is commercially available fertilizer. Throughout the history of gardening, coffee grounds have proven to be a more reliable, natural and therefore environmentally friendly fertilizer. It enriches the leached earth in spring. In addition to the nutrients, the coffee grounds also contain antioxidants and tannic acid, which you can also find in all commercially available fertilizers.
If you want to plant roses in spring, you should first bring the soil to the appropriate pH value with coffee grounds
Disperse the soil enriched with coffee grounds in the area of the roots
The roses love the acidic soil and will grow and bloom like crazy in it
If you are not a coffee drinker, you can use black tea. Both coffee and black tea contain tannins that can acidify the soil. In this case, you can use calcareous agents such as eggshells, e.g. counteract B. Simply crumble a few eggshells and put them in the ground. In this way, the pH values of the soil are balanced again. You should start fertilizing the roses now in spring and stop fertilizing with coffee grounds by June at the latest. The coffee stimulates the growth of the roses and makes them bloom magnificently.
If you do not have enough coffee grounds, you can also water the garden with diluted coffee residues
Both the set from the coffee maker and the one from the filter coffee can be used to fertilize roses
Collect more coffee grounds because they will come in handy in your garden until summer
Allow to air dry completely or quickly pop into the oven at 60 degrees for an hour
Fertilizing roses every four weeks is recommended and can be stopped in June
If you don’t drink coffee, you can fertilize almost as well with black tea
What else is the coffee grounds in the garden good for?
The coffee grounds are basically a waste product that ends up in the garbage. If you are concerned that you cannot drink enough coffee yourself to fertilize all the roses in the garden with the remaining grounds, you can also get coffee grounds from the coffee shop or from work. With the coffee grounds you can not only fertilize the roses. Ferns, hydrangeas and currants, but also peonies like the acidic soil, just like many types of vegetables. You can enrich compost and potting soil with coffee grounds. Again, the coffee grounds should be completely dry. And if you want to keep all kinds of snails away from your garden, you can use the coffee grounds again. If the coffee grounds are not enough, you can also water the garden with diluted coffee if necessary. Is the soil in your area too calcareous? Then follow the following tip: Put two tablespoons of coffee grounds in the watering can and fill up with water. With this trick you neutralize the pH value in the soil and at the same time you get an ecological and very sustainable fertilizer.
