Product Description

Bananas have become very popular in the last few years, for their large architectural leaves as opposed to their fruit!

The Red Abyssinian Banana is a relative newcomer, and brings with it a stunning colour addition - the huge paddle shaped leaves that can reach 75cm long in a season are heavily veined burgundy red, and in full sun the leaf edges have a very red tinge.

Grow in large heavy pots for stability, in full sun and warm spots, and feed and water well in June-August when they grow quickly. Borderline hardy, so in late Autumn, allow leaves to die back and cut stem to 20cm tall, and bring somewhere frost free till following May. Keep dry, and new leaves should quickly emerge next year.

What Is Supplied

Item 680065 supplied as:
Supplied as 1L potted plant c. 30-40cm tall

Service:
Have had three orders this year and all of the plants received have bolted - tall thin and not able to stand on their own - try would not be able to sell them in a garden centre where people could actually see what they are buying.
Product:
Forced in a small pot, to tall thin and leggy, so not able to grow from the middle like these banana plant should.

good service and plant packaging and delivery.. Plants arrive in good condition and as stated in height and pot size.
Product:
This is a good size plant, but I felt a 3inch pot was far too small andalthough the weather was bad, I had to repot it into a larger pot immediately as it kept falling over. Otherwise seems healthy and has had new growth so ok at the moment.
