    could you put the banana skins in tinfoil ... pop them in the oven till totally dry then blitz them up to a powder in a blender ... then simply add a teaspoonfull or so in each plantpot of soil ?

    Absolutely you can budfarmer, I've personally over the years always sun dried mine then used a mortar & pestle to grind them up and used them for my roses and tomatoes..I also know you can use the oven to quick dry them too

    I remember mentioning it to Macky a little while back - Clicky

    I use a tablespoon in every 5 litres, also good for magnesium

    Awesome I will try that too, I found several blogs and vids with this method so thought it would be a nice little bit of fun.

    No different to drinking a fruit juice, still plenty of vits and sugars in it

    My grandmother would grow tomato plants out of old marrows . The would cut a plug out of the marrow plant the tomato in the plug hole and then plant the hole marrow into the ground. We had a constant supply of tomatoes they would also have a large barrel with a hessian sack hanging in it and dump horse manure in the bag and and let it stew in the water and feed everything in the garden with the water. I suppose some form of tea


    in a green and pleasant land

    These are all great stories but at the end of the day the microbes need to get to work on the stuff your putting in the soil which gives off odours etc and possibly attracting unwanted’s to the garden if not buried deep enough.
    This is why your better fermenting it so it becomes instantly available to the plants
