Steep hill that's an interesting one I'll try. We like strong coffee at breakfast and I use the grinds around the edge of all my pots now and find that works better than anything else for me, but will try the watering now as well.

Great use for stale instant coffee!! Just have to lay pellets Tom morning and pray that when I'm back its all still alive!! 

Must admit we drink strong filter coffee and our patio now has a lovely whiff of coffee when walking past pots! Doesn't seem to have had a detrimental effect on plants so far. Just been out on slug patrol and only found 4 slugs whereas two weeks ago the count one night was 68 just on the patio! So slowly I think making headway

I'm about to go out now and have a look. It's just difficult looking everywhere! Unsure if I should put my dahlia in when it warms a bit or put them at the front where more open and sandy type soil! (Shipped in soil!!!)
