Default Re: container bananas 2022


i have a banana that i bought from florida hills as a tc, supposed to be a gros michal but it looks like some kind of dwarf banana. short dark green paddle like leaves with a beautifully colored thickish p-stem. i have not got one to fruit yet, the winter takes them out, but they got, p-stem height, to almost 6 ft.

anyways, i planted 2 mats 5 years ago and when the manure/compost ran out so did they, only reaching 1ft. the last couple of years.

thanks for the info., i believe this might be the ticket i was looking for. i just planted yesterday 2 in a specially prepared hole.

npk of wood ash 0/1/3 to 0/3/7

npk of banana leaf ash 1.75/0.75/0.5
