How do I use homemade banana fertilizer?

eugenflorinsgarden(8A NV)March 26, 2013

I want to make some banana fertilizer. Some websites say to blend it, some to dry it, some to just leave it. He's anybody used the Bananas as a fertilizer before? Please help!

I haven't used it, but I imagine the method is optional. Some people just bury the peels whole, but blending would allow you to water it in after planting. If you powder it, you probably should scratch it in around the roots. If you have racoons or squirrels, you might want to add some mint to disguise the smell.
