Ok I know there has been alot posted on this. I tried looking through the archives but am too lazy to look through pages and pages to find my specific answers. lala

Ok so I had my neighbor save his coffee grounds for me to use in my garden cause I don't drink it. I'm wondering..are there curtain plants you shouldn't use the grounds on because of the acidity in the grounds? I still have oyster shell in my soil from last year so maybe coffee grounds isn't a good idea?
