You can buy Bananas each year through the summer from commercial hardware stores, but they never seem to have a good reliability. So I am hoping this Banana will be a more prolific grower and be less sensitive. This variety of Banana seems to be the 'real deal' :)

I have just re-potted it and I am now gradually exposing it to the sun as the warmer Spring approaches.

I've given it a good mix of well-drained soil, perlite, compost, plant food and an activate soil with nutrients, manures etc... it's also received a liquid manure to richen up the soil. This should give it a great start to the coming warm months ahead.

I will let it out-grow its pot before upgrading it to something larger. Fingers crossed.
