Use This Secret Ingredient For Thriving Strawberry Plants
Strawberries need acidic, well-drained soil to thrive, and roasted coffee grounds with their lactic and glycolic acids can provide strawberries with low-pH soil for healthy growth.
Like any good fertilizer, coffee grounds also provide the soil with nitrogen and phosphorus to encourage healthy growth. You can apply them directly or compost them beforehand.
If applying the grounds directly, saturate them first with enough water. However, for better results, add them to a worm-laden compost pile, like the YouTube
page @subpod does.
You may also add the coffee filter along with the grounds. Once it gets good and broken down, scoop it up and mix it into the soil around your strawberry plant like usual compost.
