ensete question

i am thinking of planting my ensete in the ground this year maybe as a view to using it as bedding but if i do try and take it out of the ground in autumn/winter will it likely harm the schefflera macrophylia,chapana and fatsia polycarpa that will be its nearest neighbours?

This ensete doesn't look good but ......

Musa 'Helens Hybrid',Ensete glaucum cold tolerance?

Hi guys,just a quick question for you. Have had these two inside a cool part of the house over winter but with very low light levels. The glaucum still looks ok but is sited closer to the window. The musa is further away and is down to one leaf and the pseudostem has shrunk in girth. Wondered if the...

A little disappointed with this one. But as it took 6 weeks to film I decided to share it anyway.

Where can I buy an Ensete ventricosum 'Montbeliardii'?

Are there any alternative suppliers for a Montbeliardii to Jingle Bells? Amulree say "out of stock", perhaps they will get stock in the Spring, but I'd prefer to be certain (and to start bringing the plant on with Light / Heat to maximise size at the end of the Summer) Do I need a larger (3L) specim...
