Or two 😉 See if you can find a montbeliardii banana, similar colouring but different shaped leaves. I've got one in but waiting on another 2 to be delivered... Gawd knows where I'm going to put them though 😂
Wow yours are much bigger then mine did you cut them back to over winter them ? I did I lost one altogether and the other although healthy is quite small with only 1 leaf @davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co
@tmwignall I'm lucky that I've got room to keep them frost free, so they kept their leaves most of the winter. They did start yellowing though, so cut them off, and new growth started almost straight away. I've got them in my polytunnel now, for a couple more weeks then I'll put them outside. Their getting greenfly on them at the moment, so need to sort that.
@richard.spicer.7906 i put them in the house about 4 weeks ago rich, and they have started to come to life. Prior to that they were in my bar outside, which is frost free, but still cold in winter. They slowly deteriorated in there.
Yeah, that’s what I’ve been worrying about. It wasn’t supposed to grow but a leaf has come through but obviously yellow as it’s in the dark so not doing much for the plant. Might start slowly introducing it to light and then will be ready for poly for a bit till frosts gone. Cheers Dave 👍🏼 (yours is looking quite healthy btw)
A bit of #advice needed please. If i can keep these going over winter, in a frost free room, is it still best to cut the leaves off, or can they stay. Havnt got the heart when they still looking healthy.
I've left the growing leaf on mine in the greenhouse. I brought one indoors last year and it didn't stop growing. Had to keep chopping it back to keep it on the windowsill 😂 If it's indoors, water when it needs it as it will dry out just don't drown it
As these aren't hardy Elaine, it's best to keep them in pot so you can bring them in every winter. If you have a big frost free space to put them in overwinter, you can let them run riot but they do have to brought in as not at all hardy 😊 @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom
