Banana Plants are the world most popular tropical fruit and you can't beat the taste of home grown bananas. Best suited to a warm, frost-free, coastal climate they require full sun and regular moisture. Before planting, thoroughly loosen the soil, enrich with a healthy application of compost and ensure they have good drainage. If planting more than one plant 4-5m apart. For the best results. Remove all but one leader and two following suckers.
Note - NSW has quarantine restrictions on the movement of bananas with the Banana Protected Area, this covers the area the shires of Tweed Heads Lismore and Byron Bay, if you are within this area you will need to get in touch with the DPI for your free permit before you can purchase banana plants.
