Musa Basjoo



The banana tree is a beautiful architectural plant with huge, green, paddle-like leaves. It produces creamy yellow flowers in summer, which is often followed by yellowish-green fruit. These are not edible, however, the plants look brilliant when incorporated into a jungle-style planting scheme, and can be potted up into large pots and treated as a dynamic feature in the Home or Garden.

You will need to protect the herbaceous pseudostem (what appears to be a trunk but contains no wood) each winter with mulch. The tops may die out but they will regrow in the spring once the temperatures warm up. Plants in containers should be brought inside for the winter.

Banana trees do not do well in drought conditions since they need to be watered often for proper growth. They should also be fertilised several times throughout the year.

Outdoor Banane Trees; Protecting bananas over winter. The Japanese banana, Musa basjoo, is the most commonly-grown banana in the UK. With winter just around the corner it is really important to keep a close eye on the weather forecast, as you will need to have your bananas wrapped before the first hard frosts set in.
