Free fer­tiliser at Mor­risons

Rutherglen Reformer - - Intimations -

Gar­den­ers in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang are be­ing urged to take ad­van­tage of a spe­cial of­fer.

Mor­risons in Cam­bus­lang is giv­ing away used cof­fee grounds from its store which can be used as fer­tiliser.

Green fin­gered res­i­dents can pick up a bag lo­cated on a ded­i­cated stand at its café.

There will be no limit to the num­ber of bags avail­able to each gar­dener to take away.

Used cof­fee grounds are a source of ni­tro­gen which is needed by plants in order to grow.

They also en­cour­age the growth of mi­cro-or­gan­isms and are thought to at­tract earth worms.

Gar­den­ers can com­post their used cof­fee grounds or put them di­rectly into the soil around their plants.

Put­ting it di­rectly into the soil adds or­ganic mat­ter which im­proves wa­ter re­ten­tion, drainage and struc­ture.

Gavin Pen­man, store man­ager at Mor­risons Cam­bus­lang said: “Used cof­fee grounds are a great or­ganic re­source which gar­den­ers can use in their com­post or soil.

“We sell a lot of cups of cof­fee in our stores and don’t like to see any­thing go­ing to waste, so it’s great to see this nat­u­ral fer­tiliser go­ing to a good home.

“We hope that when spring comes Cam­bus­lang’s plants will be in full bloom as a re­sult.”
