Re: Soil drainage
I wouldn’t put any peat! It holds a lot of water! If you have slow draining dirt I recommend coarse sand. You can buy it at Home Depot for $4 a bag or so. Don’t get the play sand! Get the quickcrete pool filter sand if they have it! It’s the best thing you can do! 95% of Musa roots grow in the top 1 foot of soil! So under the plants put coarse sand and around the plants in the top 6” or so put organic material! Compost or composted manure is awesome and low cost! Composted leaves/leaf fungus is the best thing you could put if available! Then on top of that put a few inches of mulch.
Pure coarse sand is by far better than anything else for under the plants/corms.
