I heard coffee grounds are good for gardens. Is this true, and can I put them in all my flower beds. In one of my flower beds I have mint growing, and don't know if it would be good for that flower bed. Can you please let me know. Thank you.

Coffee grounds are a source of nitrogen and their bulk will help loosen soil if you dig them into your garden. Or, you can use them as a two-inch mulch around your plants, trees and shrubs. It won't hurt your plants.
