i cut back the thai black... it is growing but very slowly


earlier in the tread i mentioned messing up the monarda.. looking back at the pics from this day last year it would have been almost in full bloom by now
there are still a few plants alive so hopefully it can fill back in



on this day last year i noticed this plant as a baby seedling it spent all winter as a stump and it is now growing well again.. it will be interesting to see what variety it is


this basjoo pup came up quite pale and then the next day turned pink

Great video and amazing northern garden.
Rose of Sharon and all those ornamental green bushes look marvelous.
Phlox out front is huge.
Tomatoes look ready to pick soon.

I need a garden trampoline too!

That's awesome - I don't see many pups, have you been removing them over the season or am I just missing them? Crazy how that guy grows from nothing above the ground in the spring to the beauty it is now.

there are 11 pups right now but i did attempt to separate some pups earlier this season and botched it
i think what survived was a small pup coming from the corm i separated but the plant itself snapped off completely
also another where i did not get much corm...didnt make it


oh yeah, the phlox is the neighbours... lots of tomato sandwiches lately

Amazing amount of pups that plant is making.
It seems to like the location and care your supplying.

You now will have a lifetime supply of Basjoo.

Default Re: container bananas 2022

so this is one of my mystery seedlings which popped up in a container with sugar cane growing in it
my guess now is that it is ensete glaucum
i am basing that guess on pics of seedlings i saw on a german? forum post i came across
they had ones which went dormant like mine over winter and looked a lot like mine
EDIT: also a thread on bananas .org : Ensete glaucum up in 13 days
they are among the seeds i ordered a while back and may have been in the soil used for the sugar cane
anyhow to the point i separated the sugar cane from the banana plant today





this pup i separated from the matoke is doing well
i have been easing it into the sun

separated 3 pups today as well...zebrina,fhia02 and dwarf namwa

I had ice on a hose in the yard this morning......I might be right behind you bringing the plants in.

That Plumeria looks better than plants grown 1400 miles/2253.082 km south of you......I need to dig one up and bring it home.

The jungle looks nice with all the tall green filler plants with the large deep green leaves.

it is going to be cold tonight... well actually the coldest early in the morning so i am going to wake up really early and pull the tarp over these plants and some others not pictured
i am going to set up a little electric heater under the one cover and put a water cooler bottle with hot water under the other tarped off plants...brought some into the house and some into the garage.. the matoke is right up against the house
after it warms up around 9 am i am going to bring them all back outside and it looks like at least a week of semi decent weather in the long term forecast

all the plants are back outside now but the wunderground 10 day says it will get cold next weekend so they will need to come inside for the season

Default Re: container bananas 2022

so last sunday i brought most of the plants inside
the only ones left are the ones which will spend all winter out there (mekong giant, basjoo and possible musa thomsonii) and two which i will try to store dormant in the heated basement (fhia 02 and matoke)




getting the grade correct for the hay bales i noticed this banana root going through a seam in the retaining wall


bales in place to insulate wall


possible thomsonii.. i hope it makes it. it didnt grow that much this year


likely because this basjoo overshadows it


also still in the backyard is the fhia 02



out front are the basjoo, mekong giant and matoke


it is amazing that they are still green. it got colder than forecasted the other day and there was frost on the roof pictured and the native trees have already changed colour
