Natural fertilizer made from coffee and eggshells

Coffee grounds can do a lot more. It is also well suited as a fertilizer for the vegetable patch and the room or balcony plants because it contains numerous minerals. However, it can be over acidic.

You like to eat carrots, rands, radishes or kohlrabi, but the leaves land on the compost? It tastes just this part of many veggies amazingly well - and is still healthy. For example, you can find even more vitamins in the cabbage leaf than in the much-noticed tuber.

 

3. Cooking water for your plants

The cooking water of hard-boiled eggs is also an excellent fertilizer. It provides plenty of boiled calcium, which is suitable for flowers and vegetables. In the same way, you can handle the cooking water of the potatoes. It contains, among other things, potassium - a mineral, which many commercial fertilizers contain.
