Using Coffee Grounds in the Garden

What plants do I put my used coffee grounds on? Is it best to turn it into the soil or just put around the base?
Thanks for any info.

Use them for anything that likes acidic soil. Here is a list of them that do. I can tell you though, that the coffee grounds will have little effect on your plants......there is just not enough acid in them to help that much unless you continuously put it on one plant to the exclusion of others. ... ndexToken_plantsforAcidAlkalineSoils
