Banana skins and roses

Banana skins can do wonders for the health of your roses if they are dug in around the roots just below the surface with the inside of the peel facing down. Banana skins are packed with phosphates, sodium, magnesium, silica, potassium, sulphur and calcium.

Many rose-lovers swear that meat fat buried around the roots will also yield stunning blooms.

The scent and health of roses is thought to be improved by planting parsley nearby.
