    Yes I love using banana peels in my garden! Banana peels also decompose very easily into the soil!
    I will occasionally soak one or two peels (stickers removed, of coarse!) Into a gallon or two of room temp water for 24 hours or so and use it to water my houseplants with as a natural fertilizer option instead of chemicals.

    I usually feed my peels to my worms. Looks like I can make tea then feed them to the worms… BONUS!! Thanks for the info

    I’ve been using banana peels for a couple of years, they make great fertilizer! They’re used to fertilize staghorn ferns so that just proves how great they are! I like making a tea with them then pouring it on my plants! Easy and inexpensive!

    Wow. I have been tossing away a lot of banana peels! Will start putting the. Outside!
