A GARDENING expert shared an easy and affordable hack she uses to revive her plants.
She showed off eco-friendly advice using some of her kitchen scraps.
Content creators (@slorbz_official) revealed gardening tips to her TikTok followers.
“Next time you eat a banana, save the peel,” she advises, savoring the fruit and setting the peel aside to eat later.
After removing the sticker, she placed the banana peel in a jar filled with water.
She explains that the residual potassium in the rind enriches the water as it settles.
“Let it sit overnight and the potassium from the peel will seep into the water,” she says.
A few hours later, she had the perfect solution for watering plants at a very low cost.
“The next morning, just remove the rind and ta-da! Free and organic plant food,” she says.
“Easy, your plants will love it,” she adds.
Other gardeners have taken to the platform to share their tips for starters and thrifty plant enthusiasts.
One woman, Ellie, revealed that she often goes to local cafes, such as Starbucks, to get free compost.
“They usually give away coffee grounds for free, and you can add it to your compost to create a better environment for certain plants,” she says.
She also suggests going to your local library, which often has seed banks to help new gardeners get started with their gardening.
