Mix together eggshells and coffee grounds and you’ve got yourself a miracle product. What do you do with the eggshells and coffee grounds when you’re done? You probably just throw them in the trash, but that’s a bit of a waste. Those shells and grounds can actually be very useful! Put them in a blender and the result might just work wonders in your garden!
This trick can be amazingly helpful for people who have a green thumb and love to garden. Your plants will be grateful! When the temperatures rise outside it could go one of two ways with your beloved plants: either they thrive in the warm weather or they wither and get eaten by all kinds of vermin, like snails.
With the tip we’ve got for you today, though, that might just be history. And you don’t need expensive pesticides or plant food for this at all. All you need to do is be more mindful of what you throw in the trash!
What do you need for this trick? It’s very simple: you need 12 empty eggshells and four generous tablespoons of coffee grounds. So, eat up! Or, you know, simply store the eggshells in a container until you have enough of them. Once you’ve gathered the ingredients, you have to put them in a blender and add a generous splash of water. Blend these ingredients together until it’s turned into a smooth mixture. Add extra water if needed.
When the mixture is done, you can pour it over the soil where your plants grow in your garden. You’ll notice they will suddenly thrive and grow like never before! And the snails will stay away too. How does this work? Coffee grounds contain nitrate and snails hate this substance, so they won’t come near it. The eggshells, in turn, supply calcium directly to the soil. This will cause your plants to become healthier and stronger!
