Green Tea Leaves Make Great Plant Food
Tea leaves, in addition to making a great tasting beverage, have many other uses. Used tea leaves have been used as deodorizers, carpet cleaners, window cleaners and mouthwash.
Used tea leaves are especially popular as plant fertilizer. In case you were wondering, there is good reason for this.
Apparently used tea leaves contain all the big three nutrients, N-P-K, as well as some trace minerals that plants need to thrive.
Tea leaves are acidic and acid loving plants, like tomato plants and roses love to have used tea leaves sprinkled around their base like a mulch.
For best results, you should sprinkle use tea leaves around plants and gently scratch them into the soil surface. If you are not this precise of a gardener, you can always put your teal leaves in a compost pile and reap their benefits at a later time when you use the composted soil.
