My wife insists on putting used teabags on the pots on our patio.

I tell here that there is no goodness in them.

Am I right?

Welcome to the site!

Tea bags would help with plants that enjoy acidic conditions, my tea bags go into my compost pile.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
