Banana - Lady Finger

Plants are growing well for the time being, but I will soon have to work out how to provide them with suitable hot water bottles so they can deal with Canberra's winter frosts. I lived in Darwin for many years and grew Lady Fingers in the back yard, and I'm now determined to prove everybody wrong and eventually harvest a banana here. Currently growing in pots with wheels so I can bring them inside for the winter nights.
