Bananas are tropical. If you can keep it warm in  a conservatory, you can enjoy the leaves all winter and get a head start on next summer. You won't need to fleece it. Just don't let it be next to the glass which will be colder in freezing weather.

Anyone had health problems after pruning Buddleia?

Posted: 02/10/2016 at 22:16

I found the worse one was Phlomis fruticosa. I had to shred it with goggles on and and a scarf over my mouth. Please don't laugh at the thought. I also had ear muffs on because the shredder is noisy.

I dug it out and replaced it with  a buddleja.
