Aww Sandra thats lovely, me and my SIL are like that,.. I read she BF done without a holiday this year to do the garden, Well Worth it, Once the holidays over theres nothing to show for it but a fading Tan, She will have this for Years :))

Yes Mac they are, If it kicks the Bucket :) ill get another one next year, its just a case of seeing how big it will grow before Autumn,..

Thanks BB, I love the Colour, found a new nursery with a better choice of Exotics, and a lot cheaper than GCs.

I dont know Paul, Maybe Mushy will know..

I haven't heard of an Ethiopian Banana before but on mine the label say's Ensete Ventricosa Maurellii "Red Abyssinian Banana". I got it from Amrulee Exoctics but i have been other places and seen the same plant called different names depending where you are !
I suspect they are the same banana's just different bunch hehe.

I had one of these for three years. 1st winter it lived in the utility room, 2nd it stayed planted and 3rd even though it was heavily wrapped in fleece it didn't make it.

Wheres the global warming when you want it?
