What is the right time frame to start adding orange &
bannanna peels to container gardens. I purchased plants from a nursery 2 weeks ago. They are growing happily, I am in zone 6 using miracle grow potting soil mix. I was thinking about drying the peels out or just putting the peels in a bottle and make peel water. Is it to early for that? if not what is the best method. I apologise still can not figure out how to post pics! thanks in advance

Welcome!

Add your peels to the compost pile. They will be great for your plants in about a year. It takes too long for an uncomposted peel to break down into something usuable for your plants. In the meantime, the process of decomposing is using nitrogen out of the soil and attracking vermin.
