It depends upon the variety of strawberry plant. If seasonal, no. If everbearing, yes, in my opinion. If you have just planted them, no, because you want to discourage "runners" the first year, I hear, but if established, and you want lots of green growth, the used coffee grounds will make a big difference in the leaf growth, which should then also help the plant produce good strawberries, my favorite fruit! lol I heard that spreading dry grass under each plant helps a lot to keep fruit from spoiling, and spreading basil leaves discourages pests from eating the berries?

Good luck and God bless you. : )

Yes coffee grounds are great for all plants, a lot of nutrients in them to help plants grow. I put them around my tomato plants and they are growing so fast I can't keep up with


Try it and see! Good luck

I put coffee grounds around all my plants and use leftover coffee mixed with water to water them. They love it.

Thanks it made sense but thought you would know. Grass idea since the landlord just dumped it in the garbage dumpster. Hope I can grab some for my 5 barrels newly planted overbearing.
