coffee grounds are excellent for holding moisture in dry weather,but you should add quality compost as coffee grounds hold no nutrients of note,but before you add this, put a circle of black plastic sheet in the bottom of your tyres with plenty of holes in ,this will suppress weeds and let any excess water drain away,.mix a little grit in the mix of compost and coffee grounds to help with drainage too,about 2 weeks before sowing or planting add a hand full of general purpose fertiliser such as growmore and mix in to the top third of your compost ,this should grow most things.....hope this helps ?

Whats your plans for the garden this year?

i would fill half with well rotted manure and top half with 50/50 soil and peat free compost,and a little sand to help drainage ,you will grow anything in that

allonions need good drainage ,add a little sand when you sow them ,and don`t cover the seed to much,they will germinate better in cool conditions say 12 to 15 degrees ,add a little bone meal in your soil a week before sowing this will help growth after germination,,and don`t water too much in dry weather as onions don`t like there feet getting wet lol
