Banana peel slurry?
So many of you may remember my post Valentines mini roses. They'be been chillin chillin in their new window boxes putting out some new growth and all that. I've been reading some testament to the benefit of banana peels and roses. I was over a friends last night and took her peels from about three bananas. From what I have read on line and on instructables.com, is that most people just bury the peels along with the roses, but since it's such a small container and they've JUST gotten established and accustomed to their new home, the last thing I want to do is dig up around them and bury chopped bits of banana peel. So is it possible to just blend it up with some water and make a kind of slurry or shake or something and bury that shollowly? Will blending it up make it an easier and faster process for the roses to benefit from the peels? Not all are doing as well as others and I would like them to get some extra help ASAP. Also, could I just steep the peels or chopped peels in water for a few days, or even boil the peels and use the water, almost like a compost tea? Will the water contain any nutrients from the peels that the roses benefit from?
