How to use coffee grounds correctly on the garden
The next time you finish your morning coffee, think twice before you throw away the grounds. Coffee grounds can enhance magic your garden, not necessarily in the ways you would expect.

Increases Plant Nutrition
Coffee grounds contain 2% of nitrogen, but plants can not use this until it breaks down. As these grounds decompose, the low nitrogen level in them, acts as long-acting fertilizer.
