    Growing Seeds

    Tea leaves from tea bags can be the start of your garden. After using the tea bag for your tea, save the bags and follow these instructions. Cut open the tea bag. Select a container with proper drainage to grow your seeds for your starts for your garden. Put your seeds on a paper towel or similar density napkin. Moisten the towel. Put your towel in the bottom of the container you chose to start your seeds. You'll germinate your seeds with the tea bags and then plant them in the garden. This method is according to the Kiwi Conservation Club.

    Assisting the Soil

    Tea is acetic. The acetic acid in tea helps decompose other contents in the soil. While tea leaves increase the decomposition of other item the soil is being enriched. For those who have a compost pile, this fact is extremely helpful. You can either use the tea leaves in the decomposing bags if they are able to decompose or you can open those bags and use the contents in your compost The process of decomposition can easily be helped with the use of your used tea bags. Spread your tea bags or tea leaves to assist all of your composting.

    Tea Leaves As Food

    Tea leaves from your used tea bags can be food. Worms can eat the tea leaves. It might be necessary to open the tea bags and empty the contents in the area you wish to feed the worms. When the worms eat the tea leaves, you are getting a second use of your tea leaves. It is a known fact that worms can safely consume tea leaves. Another fact is that once they digest the leaves they produce a more "nutrient-rich output". This action will give your garden a healthier place for your seeds, starter plants and give you lots of worms for your garden as well. Many gardeners have known this fact.

    Water Retention

    After you use your tea bags, do not throw them away. Use them in your garden to absorb water. Water retention is accomplished with your used tea bags. You can either keep them in the paper bag or open the bags and put your leaves in your garden when they are loose. Even dried tea bags can easily be reused for water retention. Tea leaves are naturally good water retention contents for your garden or flower pots. This can help you when you are away for a day or two and do not have anyone to water your plants. If it does not rain for a day or two the tea leaves will retain the water for your plant growth.

    Weed Control

    Used tea bags have so many good uses and if you use them, you will see the difference in your garden and flower pots. Try allowing your used tea bags to control weeds. The contents in the tea bags can do that easily. This allows you more time to spend somewhere else. Your weeding will be cut down when you use your used tea bags to stop weed growth. You can either use the bags unopened or open the tea bags to cut back on the weeds. This can be a healthier soil and less weeding for you too. Don't let this tip go to waste.
