Hallo Joachim,

gratuliere Dir zur Publikation deines Buches.

Ich hoffe ich komme dazu dein Buch zu lesen, bisher habe ich noch keine deutschsprachigen Bücher zum Bananenanbau gelesen. Ich hoffe das kann ich noch nachholen.

Freundliche Grüsse aus der Türkei

I understand you were making the book about bananas in cool climate.

I lives in Thames, New Zealand and Thames is in zone 10.

Thames had 10 frosts a year, with average lowest winter temperature 30C above freezing point, but somes go to -1oC below freezing point for few nights on June, July and sometimes on May and August.
June to August are cold wettest months.

Hamilton is in zone 9, with 70 frosts a year, and temperature go below -10 below freezing point for few nights.

I am farming the edible banana plants in small plantations and at my place and hybridizing the ornamental banana plants at my place.

Ornamental bananas plants:
hybrid musa aurantiaca x musa mannii
hybrid musa ornata pink flower x musa velutina
hybrid musa mannii x musa ornata red flower

musa violacea
musa ornata pink flower
musa ornata purple flower

musa intinerans
musa bordelon
musa violascens (I still am growing them, may not be cold hardy) three 1 1/2-year-old plants, with four suckers (two suckers per one plant).
musa campestris (extinct) I grew them, but they died when they are 1 1/2 year-old, due to either I over-watered them or poorly drained soil or not cold hardy.
musa hirta seeds failed to germinate.
musa voonii seeds failed to germinate.
musa textilis seeds failed to germinate.
musa beccarii var hottana seeds failed to germinate.

One van snubbed me, the driver broke the traffic rules and his insurance pays compensation for personal suffering. I was operated and had to stay in the wheelchair for 3 months, since last Tuesday I'm learning to walk again. Now I can walk more and more better without crutches.

Best wishes
