Re: Holes in the leaves

I guarantee you a caterpillar got to it when the leaf was still rolled up in a cigar and that's why it looks like that. They love fresh tender leaves

How do I know? It happened to a couple of mine...

Re: What's blooming in your garden? (bananas)

For me, it fruited at 14-16' of p-stem typically, with leaves way above that. That could have been OK, but it always needed to be propped to avoid collapsing, and I found it too tricky to fit props...

Re: What's blooming in your garden? (bananas)

I think you'll love it. With great reluctance, I got rid of it because it was too tall to manage in my yard. It was my favorite for flavor.

Re: Unknown variety from Mexico

Mexicans sure do love their Manzanos... They aren't bad once they get spots, too acidic when just yellow where I prefer most bananas.

Re: Disease in the roots

I would dig up the corms; clean all black and soft spots off; and disinfect with bleach water. ... Repot in course sand and hope for a pup to come up.
