Homemade Plant Fertilizer


I love watching my plants thrive after getting a good dose of fertilizer! They pop right up, turn greener and you can almost watch them get bigger!

Commercial fertilizers are not a great option for me for several reasons! They are full of chemicals (that leach right into your fruits and vegetables) and are just not nice for the environment. I would also rather use food waste that I otherwise would throw out and put it to good use! 

Homemade Plant Fertilizer 

  • Used coffee grinds
  • Egg shells


Ok, so it isn’t rocket science! I don’t even use measurements. I just keep all of my used grinds and shells in a big ziplock bag in the freezer and when the bag is full, I blend them together in the food processor and viola! Homemade plant fertilizer! 



1 tablespoon per plant per month or so and I cannot believe the difference! I use it on house plants, hanging plants, my roses and in the veggie garden! Full, big healthy plants from things I would have thrown away!!
