Hey y’all! I had to take some time away from this app but I’m finally feeling ready to post again. Missing all of my awesome fellow garden nerds! 😃And look here, my banana tree is fruiting 😍🥰 #florida #9a #banana #fruittree
Thank you @KariSamuel 🥰🥰. The white/purple thing reveals a series of petals and little flowers. Yes the bananas grow like that! Cool huh? I’ve never had a banana tree produce so much and I’m curious to see where it goes. I guess all that compost gave her a boost. 🥰💚
This #banana tree has been here for many years, but I’ve cut it all the way back a few times. Banana trees are just so common in #Florida! When this gets big, it shades my already too-shady yard a bit much, so it gets cut. But being here on #gardentags makes me want to let it grow, so we’ll see! 😍 #9a
@cyndi It hasn’t ever produced fruit, but that may be because I keep cutting it! I’m excited to see what happens when I let it grow. I’ve never even cared for it, really. They grow so easily. I wonder what will happen when I give it some love and nutrients! 😍
@cyndi For the longest time, I really didn’t like local plants. I wanted to create some English sort of garden here in Florida! But I’ve grown to absolutely LOVE native plants and it’s so much more fun to garden with plants that can live, and actually thrive, in our harsh summers!
