Banana Peel Disposal

1 0EmailPrintFollow

If left too long, banana peels product fruit flies. After taking the peel off the banana, I put it in the plastic sleeve my newspaper comes in and tie it in a knot. Works fine until trash pickup.

In the spring and summer, I dig a whole around my roses and lay the peel down and cover with dirt and water it in. The roses love this.

If you want them to decompose faster, run them through your blender, then add them to your garden or composting area.

Roses really love them and they repel aphids.

Got a garden? Toss those banana peels in there! The plants love the potassium! I always put a banana peel in my hanging ferns. Happy, happy!
