Putting softdrinks on the garden

Posted: 18/06/2013 at 14:01

I saw or heard somewhere a couple of weeks ago that all the dregs or old bits of carbonated drinks like Coke, lemonade etc could be used to water the garden as they contain lots of nutrients... am I going mad or is this true? 


Another unknown in the garden :-/

I popped some in with the carrots after hearing about the carrot fly... don't know if they'll do anything but I'm hoping so

Ooooh great idea... thanks I will get some in that case I'm assuming any fine grit will do and that it doesn't need to be anything in particular?
