Crocus combinations

Musa acuminata - banana & pot cover combination

  • Position: full light (with shade from hot sun)
  • Soil: loam-based potting compost (John Innes No.3)
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Hardiness: tender (will need winter protection)
  • Current height: approximately 15cm (+ or - 10% including the pot)
  • Pot cover: comes with 7cm Brussels round mini pot cover white

    The decorative foliage of this plant makes it a great addition to the home, conservatory, or summer terrace, and in time, it will form a tall and graceful evergreen, with giant, paddle-sized leaves. In ideal conditions, you may even see pendent clusters of tubular flowers, which may go on to produce edible bananas!

  • Garden care: During the growing season water regularly and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser each month. Water sparingly in winter and top dress each spring. As the old leaves become shredded, trim them off. The plants should be potted into a larger pot in autumn and may be left outside from May to September (provided there is no risk of frost). They need winter protection and can be kept in a greenhouse or conservatory from October through to April.
