Gardening is like cooking. To improve, you need to be willing to make mistakes and experiment. Also, common names are garbage. Zone 9b, West Sac, CA.

Well, I finally did it. Got this #bananaplant in the ground. Despite my initial fears, she survived winter in a pot outdoors. This is meant to be. 11June2021

My little #DwarfCavendish #banana is not so little anymore. As these plants get older, they lose the #maroon or #purple blotches on their leaves. 10July2020 #foliagefriday

Is anyone else not looking forward to all the plants they need to move indoors for winter? #DwarfCavendish

@misternatureboy I’m in 9b closer to the bay and I plan on protecting bananas in place. There’s a guy in east Sac that grows lots of fruiting bananas outside
