Free fertiliser at Morrisons
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.”
