Myth #1: Coffee grounds help plants grow better.
Truth: While it may help some plants, coffee often doesn’t help and can harm plants. If you want to use them, supplement it with other organic products.
Myth #2: Add sand to loosen clay soil
Truth: When mixed with water, sand and clay becomes hard. To loosen clay, it’s best to add compost.
Myth #3: Drought-tolerant plants don’t need irrigation.
Truth: This is only true when the drought-tolerant plant is well established. For non-native plants, it is especially important to get enough watering through the first summer.
