Can eating bananas help to lower high blood pressure?

No. Bananas are high in potassium and may be good for cramping (if they are related to low potassium) they may have a very minimal and indirect effect in BP and they are not part of the management/ treatment of hbp and neither is garlic, another myth. If you do have hbp you need to be under medical supervision to have the best chance of avoiding the complications of hypertension.
