Welcome Timmy from the great state of Maryland, USA. Take a look in the Wiki for info on your basjoo. I have found it to be beautiful, hardy for me in zone 7, and comes back year after year with more and more pups. Good luck!

Welcome to the site from a fellow Scandinavian blood! History shows you should never tell a Viking "You can't possibly go across the ocean in those little boats!" Well, if you can grow a banana in Sweden.....Uff Da! Welcommen!

Welcome Timmy, from the Sunshine State!!

Glacial till mixed with a highly organic materials should be great soil to grow your bananas. I hope they do well!! If you need specific growing tips check out the previous threads or ask specific questions we will be glad to help.

Good weather, good growing, and Welcome once again!!
