Default Re: Greetings from hot Poland

Thank you for the warm welcome here Friends!

@Red Sky, we have similar climate like north part of USA. No, its imposible to plant bananas here outside in december, first short frost starts here on october. We can plant them here without protection from april to september, sometimes to october. This winter was relatively warm in my area, we have only about -14 celsius. Last 10 years minimum is about -26 C (locally about -30) here. Usually winter (longer than few hours frost) starts here in december or january, february is colder and march is mixed (little winter and little spring). 4-5 months/year are warm/moderate warm, 1-3 really cold and others are mixed. There is my weater station with archival data:

I live in windy area near sea - so i dont try plant banana outside. But my friends from other Polish regions grow bananas outside. Most of them take back bananas to home after first frost.

Some of my bananas photos:

musa veluntina

Ensete glaucum

ps. i take photos from my Polish forum site because it is easy for me. Please forgive me if it is not alloved here but in most cases i describe my photos. If they are to large etc just please tel me i try to fix it to be fair here
