How to grow

Check with your council to gain permission to grow bananas. Plant in a deep rich soil and protect from frost and wind. Mulch the soil, but not the trunk as this will cause plants to rot. When suckers appear, select the strongest to keep and remove the rest. After the main stem bears, cut it down and allow this stem to become the new fruiting stem. Select a new sucker to encourage and repeat. Fertilise regularly, especially during fruit production.
