I have seen a few articles going around about not using coffee grounds as fertilizer. I’ve always heard it was good. Can anyone confirm if they have had food or bad experiences with this.

    I’ve used composted coffee grounds in my gardens for nearly 40 years without any issues. Some of the info you see online isn’t always accurate . Some may fear that it is too acidic or can change the soil pH but if you compost it there shouldn’t be any issues.

    I read a study that I believe Oregon State did and it said the problem wasn’t with USED coffee grounds it was the FRESH grounds that slightly acidified soil. If you live in an area that has lime in your soil then it’s just gonna acidify the lime and bounce the soil Ph back to where it originally was anyways.
