Green (or should that be yellow?) alternative

The rose bushes are alive with healthy red-blushed shoots and foliage. Recently read a (potentially great) tip about feeding them diced banana skins. Apparently they adore the potassium released during decomposition. Since trying to go green I haven’t been applying any rose feed to the plants and they have responded in kind… a few flowers on skeletal structures – bare of any foliage. Hopefully the chopped up banana skins will revive my inherited cultivars enabling continuous bloomage all summer long. Have been adding skins to two bushes and will obviously(!) let you know how they get on.
