Doctor, it's about my banana

Posted: 13/07/2017 at 00:03

Bananas need a lot of water and feed so I would mulch it with a good 3-4 inches of compost or bark which will help keep any water you give it in the soil. I'd then give it a high nitrogen feed like seaweed or nettle every couple of weeks.

Some sort of palm. It's hard to tell from the pictures. They might be Trachycarpus fortunei as they are hardy in the UK for the most part.

Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea'? More a trailing, hanging plant but may be able to train it up a mesh.

Hello on this fine day. Can anyone ID these for me. Someone gave them to my mother as a foliage plant in amongst a planted container. Years later these are all that remains. They seem to be happy in shade but I'd like to know how I should be treating them.

I think you're probably right. Not to worry. I'll find him a home somewhere as I've cared for him up until now. I don't have the heart to bin it. Thanks for the ID. 👍

Thanks Pete, sorry I didn't see your message until now.

It's now about to flower with what looks like white petals. Any ideas?
