|Did you know that house flies don’t like certain plants – so if you want to avoid having them in the house, yet on hot days still want to have the windows open – then by having the following near your windows, you might find the flies not bothering you so much!|
Basil, tomato, Hazel, marigold, tansy, mints, Rosemary and lavenders – and failing all that …..’ Venus flytrap and lots of them! But humour aside, having some of the listed planted herbs and flowering herbs in your house will also provide you with a great smell!
|Banana peels can be added to the compost bin or the wormery. We worms love bananas as much as other waste.|
HOWEVER – if you wanted to, there is another use!
The peel of the banana is rich in nutrients – potassium, potash, magnesium, calcium, sulfur and the list goes on. Because of this, there are many other uses. The peel from this fruit decomposes quickly chopped up or not. The valuable nutrients are delivered to the source, and a healthy offering with your flowers can also prevent diseases affecting your plants.
If you want to use them for a more direct application, keep them to one side, cut them up with scissors, place the chopped skins into a bowl of water, and allow them to steep for 36 hours.
Once done, strain the contents – discarding of the spent peels into the compost, but use the new cold banana tea for the likes of enhancing blossoms on flowers, or use as a feed to your roses and tomatoes who especially love this fertiliser.
You can also perform the same with your potato peels – chop them up, steep in cold water for 36 hours, sieve and use the contents in either a spray bottle or a direct application.
