9 kitchen scraps that you can use in the garden



1. Paper towel rolls

Yes, they are useful beyond cleaning the kitchen slab and kitchen mess. All you need to do is to create a protective layer with the roll and place around seedlings. This protective layer safeguards the plant from pests such as slugs.

3. Cooking water

After boiling the veggies, don’t drain the water in the sink. You can use the water (once cooled) to fertilize the plants. This also improves the quality of the soil.

5. Gable-top container

You can easily trim the tops off and use the container to keep the seeds and you can also use the container along with the top to keep the fertilizers.

6. Crushed eggshells

Crushed eggshells make an effective addition to the compost. Rich in calcium, they help worms reproduce and also aerate the soil that is helpful in the growth of veggies like tomatoes.

9. Use banana or orange peel

You can use the peel of fruits like banana and oranges to make compost or you can add them directly to the soil too in place of chemical fertilizers or insecticides.
