Even though we’re still in the midst of winter, the warm weather they’re predicting for this week; (will the weather-people be right this time?), has me thinking about what we want to plant in the yard this spring.
This year I want to put some tropical-type plants in pots on the patio, and I’ve been considering planting a banana tree or two in some rather large containers. From what I’ve read, they’ll grow just fine with plenty of water and fertilizer. Well naturally, most plants grow well with water and fertilizer and sunlight. The spot I’m thinking of would be in the sun most of the day, so I’m not sure if they’ll do well there. It gets awfully hot in the afternoon.
I was wondering if any of you had tried growing banana plants in containers and what sort of success you did or didn’t have. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. I really do want to give this a try. Thanks!
