A morning cup of tea can do more than just give you a boost. Tea bags and loose leaf tea grounds can boost your garden as well. Tea grounds act as a fertilizer, improving plant growth and health.

Next time you finish your morning cuppa, take the used tea bags or loose leaf grounds and stick them in your potting soil. If you don’t love the way the bags look in your soil, just empty their contents into the pot instead. 

Because tea grounds are natural plant matter, they increase the soil’s nutrient levels and quality as they decompose. They also improve oxygenation, which helps to create a stronger root system for your plants.
