Used Tea Leaves Make Great Soil

Using Your Tea Leaves to Feed Plants


Sprinkle your used tea leaves around the base of acid loving plants, including your tomatoes and roses. We've always known coffee grinds were good for plants, but tea leaves contain all the big three nutrients, N-P-K, as well as some trace minerals. Sprinkle the used leaves on the soil and gently scratch them in. Of course, you can also add tea leaves to your compost pile.
