Everyone’s gone bananas!

Wednesday 7 May 2014

 This banana tree is being planted, in its 160 litre pot, in the Italian Garden.   It is kept in its pot so that it can be easily taken out and moved into the polytunnell at the nursery in October before the frost.  It doesn’t tolerate any frost.     It is purely ornamental and related to the true banana.  It needs rich soil, lots of water, full sun and lots of light and warmth.

We were working in the Kiwi bed in the Lily Wood. This is one of the largest beds in the Lily Wood and six of us were doing the usual spring clear out, weeding, pruning, cutting back and raking. The blue Meconopsis had been divided and there will be an amazing show in a few weeks when they flower. Hundreds of Lilies, planted over the last two years, looking very healthy and will be worth going to look at.
