Compost for Banana Plant?

United States Us

What sort of compost, should it be planted in

On plant Musa basjoo



Mine were growing in poor gravelly soil and did well. I don't think you can kill bananaplants. Did you recently purchase that one? Didn't it have a label with it and instructions?

I have mine planted in typical garden soil. I spread some compost around it everynow and then. It has survived all winter in the garden wraped in fleece and stuffed with straw.
