Coffee grounds are an excellent addition to your compost bin and garden. By adding your used coffee filter and grounds to your compost you are adding carbon and nitrogen while attracting worms that aerate your compost and speed up the process. Additionally, to perk up your pepper plants, fertilize with the coffee grounds left over after a morning's cup of coffee. Add coffee grounds directly to your garden, and they will supply your peppers with nutrients as well as deterring slugs, snails and ants.
Save your used coffee grounds in a covered container until you can take them to your garden.
Sprinkle coffee grounds around the base of your pepper plants.
Use your fingers or a small pronged cultivator to gently work the grounds into the soil around your pepper plants. Be careful not to go too deep. Do not disturb or damage the root system of your pepper plant.
Water your pepper plants if rain is not expected.
