Banana, Cavendish

Tropical banana plants. As these like lots of water I have planted them alongside the duck pond overflow so that they can take advantage of the extra water and nutrients available at this particular site.

Withstands temporary waterlogging.

This planting is in the [04a] Duck Pond garden .

    Very poor harvest this year. Suspect lack of ducks = less water, less fertiliser
