There are many kinds of kitchen wastes which we consider as waste only. But those wastes are not actually waste. We can use those wastes in gardening as organic fertilizers. 

Used Tea/ Green Teabags 

Tea and Green tea are very nutritious for your plants and can give many benefits to the plants. Just put the used tea in some water and put it into the plants. It makes the soil more fertile. You can use it every 4-5 days. 

Vegetable and Fruit Peels 

Fruits and Vegetables have plenty of nutrients, and we usually consider their peels as garbage but those are useful for the plants. Cut the peels into small pieces and use them as a fertilizer. Fruits and vegetable peels are rich in magnesium, potassium, antioxidants, and fibres which are good for plants' health.
