Quick Tip: Using Tea in the Garden

Photograph by Shannon L. Buck, copyright December 29, 2016.

After reusing tea bags a couple of times, add the liquid and tea leaves to your garden. Let the liquid cool after pressing all the liquid from the tea bag, then add the liquid to the water you’ll use to water the plants with. Then, cut the tea bags open and add the leaves to the soil.

Both the liquid and soil can also be added to your compost heap, or be used for indoor and outdoor plants.

Happy gardening!
