Hi Carlos,

I put you down to the list at The List of European Members on bananas.org . Other than that, welcome to our little European club and I hope that we will be seeing you in this thread very often.

As to the California Gold and Texas Star pups, they are not available in Europe and I'm sorry for that, BUT I was talking to chong a little while ago and he was willing to maybe trade the next year some Pahari Kela (my) for some California Gold and Texas Star bananas he has.

It's all just a matter of time, before we get to the real deal.

I will let you know if and when I have the pups then. But until that day is here, we have to resort to our own little sandpits. You have some really nice cultivars man, will trade with you earlier, than you expect.

Have a nice day all of you.

P.S: Carlos, please delete the second post you made. You clicked the button twice and there are 2 posts that are same.

WELCOME!!!

I am not surprised you had problems with cavendishes because they have troubles also in Sicily! But what surprises me is that you have troubles with the dwarf orinoco. So my question is: which absolute low temps there are when you have the mentioned early morning frost with clear sky?

Yep, we had very very hot day today too, maybe 30+, but then the rain came in the evening and we dropped down with the temp. However, there is a nice sword pup forming on my Pahari Kela, ...

Ha ha, Makarska Istok, 30°C, Bratislava 29,5°C jupiiii.
It started to rain from the high and low pressure meeting near Austrian Berg, so it's raining warm water.
Glad to hear from you Ante. And the best is, that the nanas will need your attention again in September.
Wow, it's literally bombardment here, about 15 rain drops/cm2/2sec.

I love the way this thread has grown and serves as a focal point for the issues unique to the European members. I try to lurk every once in a while so I don't miss anything interesting!

I've been watching your weather on your sticker for quite a while and provided that it is more precise for America, we have about the same temperatures (so far, going to high 37°C in July). Nice.

Ante, what do you do? Accomodate the tourists in your houses? I know that you have a small (or big) business in summer, wish you lots and lots of guests... But nanas don't want to be alone. At least have your chldren water them, play with them.
As astonishing as it may sound (I tried it, it works), if you treat the plant like a human being, talk to it sometimes, turn your radio on for them once in a while, they grow significantly better. I tried it with tomatoes (pomidori) this year, whereas one batch was still in the window and the other one I took downstairs, talked to it for a while, turned the music on and after an hour or so I put them back to the others. In April, when I planted them out, those that I communicated with were about 10cm higher and about 1cm thicker.
Soil was the same, they stood almost the whole day close to each other, the sun and light was the same. Just the talkie and music was different.
It does make a difference. When you have time. But if your children play and your nanas are close to them, they will feel the fun. Same pot size as well.

Jack what you say is not astonishing but absolutely true, I can confirm. Plants are living beings of course, and they perceive the energies. Their purpose on this earth is to accomplish the task they were created for by their Creator, and to serve man also, so they will feel our attitudes. Me personally I love to talk to them, greet them and caress them, and utter a little blessing. They appreciate.

Forgot to mention, birds are good for grass and soil, small animals do well wtih higher plants...
For isntance, if any element is missing, it can mean an outbreak of ants and other little creatures. That's why I always keep few animals around, I taught them to come in every once in a while and they do the cleaning, like the robins with my lawn.

Sure! We were put here on Earth by the Creator expressley to TEND THE GARDEN - and what better way to do that than by talking to the plants. They're living beings too, so of course they'll respond! (Even if it's not in a language that we understand too well.)

I'm just glad that no-one can tell that I'm insane any more. And from now on, I will communicate with all my plants!

We are trying to present real autentic products of Croatia and not some industrial souvenirs made in China with only croatian name on them. 20-30 years ago these were only things that peoples were able to get from here: vines, grappas and olive oils. Nowdays everything is full of Thailand shells, plastic dolphines and craps like that. Same souvenirs U can buy in Bratislava, in Makarska, in Paris and New York but really only few are really autentic. Know what I mean?

I know precisely. Asian expansion to our markets is terrible, there's only one thing to do: Don't buy their "goods" (mostly bads, but you know what I mean).
The worst thing is, that the traditional goods and jobs, like tinkers, pottery and so (for my region) go to extinction, because no-one can beat the Asian mass produced prices. I personally rather bought one Slovak soap made of plants living in our lakes, than bought any of those vietnam souvenir sh***. Probably toxic as well. It now rests in my wardrobe and adds wonderful aroma to my clothes.

That's what I liked about Italy, when I was there (Kalabrian confirms?)... All the things in Ancona were from Italy; TVs, toilets, food, plastic bags, only Italian channels in TV, everything was "Made in Italy". That's great spirit and I wish that it was so in my country as well.
But since many industries were ruined by Germany and other western countries after 1989, there's little things that we can have now Slovak. Even the food is only imported. I'm lucky, 'cause there's lots of private (and thus expensive) homegrown food in my area, but I'm countryside, mostly. What about cities? BUSINESS.

Anyways, wish you luck Ante, I know that the crafts are very time consuming, but rewarding activities and wish you, that there's a souvenir from your shop in many foreign households.

Btw. 32°C, nanas are slowing down in their growth. But we have wonderful weather. The whole day is about 30+°C and in teh evening, as the sun sets, the temps suddenly drop to about 23°C and heavy rainfalls come in, meaning that no irrigation is needed at any time during june, july and august. I love our summers. It's just cool.
Tomatoes are ripening - first batch about 60, than I timed another batch 2 weeks later for about 80 tomatoes and then batches of about 40 each 2 weeks (what about yours, Kalabrian?), nanas are growing, citruses as well (few tangerines are already forming... jupiii), some sequoias (Sequiadendron giganteum), lots and lots of strawberries, watermelons, many kinds of berries, apples, tobacco (don't ask ), palms, spicies, roses, gladioles... And Maurellis. But I had to cut down 2 peach trees this year. Something hit them early in the spring and they died off. No warning, no frost damage, nothing. Maybe they were too old - 40 and 55 years. May they rest in the heaven garden.
