THERE is a laundry list of ways you can get flowers to bloom.
One of these is for a common fruit you probably have in your pantry, and it’s perfect for roses.
It is said that incorporating banana peels into your gardening routine can give a rose the nutrients it needs to survive.
John Dempsey, a gardening expert at Housetastic, spoke to Express.co.uk about the process.
He said: “Applying two or three banana peels to the soil will be beneficial for newly planted roses.
“You should place a chopped banana peel at the bottom of the hole before planting and mix the rest with compost and soil around the new plant.”
Banana peels are packed with nutrients that roses need to thrive.
This includes potassium, which supports the plant’s immune system.
Dempsey also explained, “Watering the soil thoroughly afterwards will help break down the shells and encourage new growth.
“Putting a banana peel on the ground near the base of a rose plant is the easiest way to increase potassium levels.
“Chopping the husk first shortens the time it takes to break down the husk, allowing the potassium to reach your plants sooner.”
Adding banana peels to your compost bin is also very beneficial.
According to the expert, they can make the compost richer, which is great for all your plants.
