Yes, coffee grounds are good for the garden. Some people add them to their compost, others use them for vermicomposting (composting with worms) and others use them straight into the soil. All are great ways to use them.
They are good for all plants. Acid loving plants do best with unwashed grounds, but rinsing them makes them ok for all plants.
How you use them is really a personal preference. Here is an article on using them in the garden that will help you decide which methods are best for you.:
What fertilizer do I use when soil is deficient in phosphorus? What do I use when soil is deficient in calcium, nitrogen, or potassium?
This article should help with phosphorus: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/phosphorus-plant-growth.htm
For calcium: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/soil-and-calcium.htm
For nitrogen: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/nitrogen-plant-fertilizer.htm
For potassium: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/plants-potassium.htm
For a veggie garden, compost or rotted manure will help with the nitrogen. This article will give you some more ideas on raising the nitrogen in the soil: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/understanding-nitrogen-requirements-for-plants.htm
I need to know can i start using the blood meal when i start my seedlings or as the plants mature? I really need your help i want to have a good harvest this year.
You want to use it as the plant mature. When they are seedlings, too much fertilizer can"burn" the seedlings. Waiting until the plants are a bit older is beneficial.
Thank you, I used the golden drop fertiliser equivalent to your suggested product and after 2 days of applying fertiliser, good flowers were grown. My question is, how frequently do we apply fertiliser to plants?

I have tested my soil and the nitrogen level is very low. What can I add to the soil to improve this problem? I want to plant my vegetables in about six weeks. Is blood meal safe?
Blood meal, which is essentially dried blood, is used often in the garden as a fertilizer for adding nitrogen to the soil (https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/blood-meal-fertilizer.htm), so using it is helpful in the garden).
There is one thing to consider though. With blood meal, you can have issues with animals being attracted by the scent and rooting around where the blood meal is spread.
