There are many ways to go about using banana peels in the garden. One way that old peels can be used is to make fertilizer that is a liquid. If you can make a water infusion with herbs or fruits, then making a liquid fertilizer is easy to do. Just place some banana peels in a quart or so of water and wait about a week or two.
