I've been enjoying researching more about Quince, as we have quite a few established shrubs near the running shed-- Right now they're in full bloom and it's lovely! I look forward to harvesting some fruit later this year! To encourage fruit, I decided to fertilize it naturally.
Using Bananas as 'Fertilizer'
Bananas are rich in both phosphorus and potassium--these are important macro-nutrients plants need. After cutting/pruning the other surrounding trees back, I raked under the plants, then spread about 5-6 banana peels on the ground. Then I covered them up w/ leaves & dirt to start the de-composing process.
What to do with all those banana's?
*Then mix in (a heaping) 2 cups mashed bananas
Pour in a lightly greased loaf pan or 9x13 casserole pan...Bake in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes (Or until completely done). This recipe can be easily doubled...That's what I'll do next time :)
ohh, this is so good, especially with hot tea *grin*
I do hope you'll try it!
