As it stands, I collect the used grounds from work, so I don't get much. Some I compost, some I feed to the worms, the rest I just throw out on the ground in the area that'll be my food forest. I doubt it does much good out there, in the limited amount I have, but it certainly doesn't hurt.

He says that he puts 2-3 inches of coffee grounds AND one dose of fish emulsion on top of the prepared beds. Our soils are alkaline here, so the growth curve may be from making the PH of the soil more neutral, so the plants pick up more nutrients.
