I eat a banana everyday, and always throw the peel away, I also drink tea everyday and throw out the tea bags. I have now tried throwing the tea bags and banana peels in water, making a tea out of it, and it helps your plants stand up and cheer! The potassium in the peels, and the antioxidant in the tea are a great combination for plants. I put them in a bucket of water, let sit overnight, and use the "tea" as a pick me up for plants, both indoors and out.
They seem to love it.

I usually compost mine and I'm going to try this.
I compost mine but this sounds good too. Also you can put a banana skin in the hole before planting a rose.
Love this idea...
Just a comment on banana peels - if/when you get into fire ants, rub the bites with the inside of the peel. You will not blister or continue to itch. I even keep a peel in my freezer to use on my granddaughter whom will always find the biggest anthill! Really works!
One year I put the banana Peels in the blender with other compost items and put it in the garden just like it was. The plants went crazy and grew right before my eyes. Kinda! It might help to add a little water to this blend. See for yourself
