Is the use of coffee grounds a good for growing



No, not really - you can add them to the compost heap periodically, or you can spread them lightly just occasionally around acid loving shrubs

Used coffee grounds are neutral and won't affect the soil's PH. It releases nitrogen into the soil as it decomposes and it feeds the earthworms. For acid loving plants, use fresh coffee grounds that haven't been used yet.

I find them useful as a slug deterrant. I use them straight from the packet..seems to work well.
