Potassium

Bananas are a great source of potassium for health reasons so does that mean that adding bananas and banana skins increase the potassium level of compost?

May a little, butyou would need quite a lot to see a difference. Adding NPK

Thanks for that link camprn.

That looks like it's got some really good info in it.

I was just thinking of bananas last night after I got home from work and it just made me wonder about potassium levels in compost.
