Yep It’s true, Roses Go Ape Over Banana Peels ( DIY ) Home Remedy.
Most folks already know how nutritious bananas are for us. But we haven’t cornered the market on the fruit’s usefulness. Fresh banana peels are a healthy addition to your rose-fertilizing program.
Since they decompose rapidly, banana peels readily release beneficial minerals such as potassium, sulfur, calcium, magnesium, trace elements and some phosphates into the soil for roses to relish.
Cut 3 or 4 overripe bananas into 2-inch pieces and drop them into the (ad) blender. Add 3 or 4 eggshells and 1 pint of water. Chop for a few seconds to break the eggshells down. Blend on high speed until all ingredients are thoroughly combined. Apply about 1 cup of the solution around the base of each rose plant. You can reapply once monthly while roses are actively growing.
