LOL you could but then you couldn't use the wee 

Coffee has all sorts in it but best added to compost heap not used round plants. 60kgs of coffee grounds contains 1,068 g of nitrogen, 84 g of phosphorous, 2,250 g of potassium, 246 g of calcium, 78 g of magnesium, 90 g of sulfur, 2.04 g of boron, 1.08 g of copper, 9.0 g of iron, 1.80 g of Manganese, 0.004 g of Molybdenum, and 4.20 g of Zinc. There you go  Obviously all that was from memory

Wonder why you were told to use such big pots?  I usually put plug plants into a 9cm pot to grow on. That gives you just enough compost in the bottom for roots to grow and a little room round the sides. Little chance of overwatering then.

Like gardenjeannie I would like to know more about nettle and comfrey 

can you mix the two and how long can you keep it. also seaweed how do you make this stuff 

seaweed is £10.00 for 500ml but the next time I go to the coast I would like to pick some free seaweed and make the tea so come on how do you make this mix


Me too James

I just chuck what I can in a bucket while working and dilute it to use it. Don,t have any kind of measurements for anything and kind of guess to dilute it. I also add the dreaded couch grass and horsetail...know they are good but don't know why!

No guessing when it comes to knowing its ready. It smells horrendous.

You can't. Your soil type is your soil type. All you can do is make it more plant friendly.Horse manure would do that because it is full of nutrients and by making the soil more able to take up water...I imagine its very dry and full of roots....This is what plants need to start the nutrient exchange off....won't go into that now....Basically when the ground is not extremely dry or extremely wet more plants can get what they need out of the soil to grow.

They are the same as us. They need air, water and food but not too much or too little of any of them.
