ED
Just wondering...
Is it safe to plant naner trees that close to the
fence bordering your neighbors yard?
When I picked up pups from momoese,
he told me that he had to occasionally go over
to his neighbors yard to dig pups or if not,
the corm will/have uprooted the fence.

I know some varieties pup profusely.
Any insights on the matter?
Thanx!

No im not growing that corm there, I haven't find any one to give them away to , I don;t want to throw them away in the trash, So they will remain there temporarily.

There is nothing strange or impressive about that. The same thing will happen, if you
drop a potato or any other bulb or rhizome there.

With a banana i would be concerned, that it might not be well enough rooted to withstand
a hefty breeze, when it grows up

Had this happen with a Musa Zebrina corm that I thought had died, sat in my greenhouse in 120 degree temps totally dry for about 5 months, then I noticed it had live sprouts, pretty amazing they are so tough, but cold is a different story lol
