Re: Do you have to protect musa basjoo?

Re: transplant idea question

Interesting, I don't much about Vancouver. I assumed it might be similar to Seattle. Anyway, to your question. Before I put the bag on I put a bunch of mulch in the area I assumed where the corm is...

I really didn't do anything special. My yard is pretty small so I don't have space for a compost pile so I did the bucket composting. That way I have been pouring the compost tea onto the...
