Jen (@hummingbirdcrewjen) shared the gardening tip with over 9,000 TikTok followers.
The content creator took her viewers on a trip to her local Starbucks, where a kind barista handed her a bag of the store’s leftover coffee grounds.
She took the bag home, tied it up, and recommended letting it sit in the sun for 30 days.
“I have fermented the coffee grounds for thirty days, let me show you how I use it as fertilizer for my winter vegetables,” she said.
The gardener sprinkled the coffee grounds into her soil for a boost.
She explained that the coffee grounds help with lowering the pH balance, water retention, and irrigation.
“Mix it with your compost, earthworms love it or use it as a moat,” she added.
People took to the comments to share their thoughts on her hack.
“Wow! This is awesome. Thank you!” said one commenter.
“Wow that’s so great I never even thought about this!” said another.
“So much amazing info in one video! Thank you!” said a third.
“Such great advice!! and it’s free!!!” added a fourth.
