Plant Info Care Info  Videos Q & A Alternatives Plant Info

Musa basjoo, the Japanese hardy banana, is a fabulous hardy banana, which when given rich soil and plenty of feed can reach 4m or more. It is root hardy so shoots from the ground each year if frosted but if the trunk is protected it gets larger each year. This plant can even flower and produce small bananas (see photo)! Plant in moist rich soil in a sunny or partially shady spot and then all you have to do is stand back and enjoy.

** Please note that leavesĀ  will be cut back on the bananas and gingers before despatch to minimise damage in transit**
