Re: Musa Basjoo in Canada

You can get them either from members on here, or some nurseries sell them :) I found my first one out front a dominion 10 years ago. You might not have the same stores as here in Ontario.

Re: Greenhouse bananas

Thanks mushtaq, they are nice right! and seem to pup well. The dwarf red got some decent growth over winter even though it was never repotted. Hoping your plants are/will look just as healthy!
