Roses & Coffee grounds, don’t make this common mistake.


Roses do like coffee grounds, but too much too close can give them a nasty nitrogen burn and can kill your roses. Never sprinkle coffee grounds right next to the plant.

There’s a great way to feed your roses coffee grounds, which lowers the ph on soil and attracts worms which loosen and feed the soil- great for roses!

It’s simple, just collect your coffee grounds and -per bush- use 1 cup of grounds to 1 gallon of water. Mix, and water the roses with it. This helps distribute the grounds and acid to prevent burn and get the nutrients to the roots.

Don’t throw away extra coffee grounds that you don’t need for roses, lots of other plants enjoy them, too.
