Musa basjoo pups

The one that has bananas on it has been in the ground for about 7 years. However in my case, last year for the first time I didn't protect it at all! I think the fruit is a cry for help! By the way I don't think they ripen in this country. icon_thumright

Musa basjoo pups

Difficult to give you an accurate response without seeing he pups, surely they cant be very big? I might be inclined to leave them until next year. Are you going to dig the Bananas up for the winter or leave them out. I have actually got bananas on mine for the first time. icon_cheers

Trachycarpus Soil Height ?

Both the guys are right as trachys don't seem to be to fussy, however as a personal preference if I were replanting them I would plant them deeper and cover the roots just because I could. icon_thumright

I wonder if cutting the side shoots encourages the main trunk of the plant to grow faster ?

Is my cordyline dead?

To be honest Jon, if you have dug it up you have probably killed it. I have never dug one up and had it survive! However you may be lucky it may shoot from the bottom. :wink:

List of reccomended online suppliers/nurseries?

As has already been stated Hardy Palms takes some beating and Nigel is very helpful. icon_cheers But for a more varied selection of unusual plants Pan Global Plants a couple of miles up the M5 is also a joy to behold. icon_thumright

I have noticed on some forums the for sale bit only stops up for a short period. I assume because if any one wanted it they would have bought it. As its not like a topic. But I am not sure if that applies here. icon_thumright
