Hello John. I have used coffee grounds back in the '70's,but the past 2-3 years i have been burying my banana skins with a view to increasing my plots fertility+ teabags and orange peel! i have heard burying banana skins underneath rose bushes gives them a boost! i will try that as i have two rose bushes to plant. :blush:

We used to dry and smoke Banana skins in the early 70s - made us as sick as a dog which wasn't what we hoped for :)
