Homemade Fertilizer from Kitchen Scraps

Vote for this contest contender!

Don't throw out your eggshells, banana peels, or used coffee grounds. Use them to feed your plants! Just cut the peels into small pieces and crush the eggshells with the bottom of a mug. Mix all of them together then spoon into your flower pots. You can also put the mix directly into the ground where your plants are growing. Simply dig a small hole far from the plant and spoon in your mixture, trying not to touch the plant root. Cover with soil and water as you normally would.

Roses love banana peels and melon skins, they have a good amount of potassium.
