If you have a little red wine left in your glass, don’t toss it down the drain; instead, give your houseplant a sip. Wine is rich in nitrogen, which is a natural fertilizer plants love to drink up. Just dilute the wine -- it doesn’t matter if it’s red or white -- with cool water, then give your plant a drink. You can also toss extra wine into the compost bin. The good bacteria that help break down matter in compost bins love wine; adding it to your compost can help re-energize and speed up the decomposition process.
