    I drink a lot of coffee and have always saved all of my coffee grounds. I put them around my heirloom rose bush and I have the most beautiful very large peach colored roses. I use them in my flower beds my garden and in my strawberry bed.

    I live next door to a Japanese woman, and she uses coffee grounds and other ground up things that DO NOT attract rats for fertilizer. I can see her garden from my 2nd floor bathroom, and you should see how precise she lays out the rows each spring - it's amazing.

    My father-in-law had a wholesale nursery. He grew the most beautiful roses. He explained to me that when planting to place coffee grounds mixed in with the soil and also used earthworms. I took his advice and yes it does work.
