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.
I think they are meant to grow quite well from seeds. Good luck!
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.
Thanks Punkdoc. That looks like the fellow!

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 have a working class bird bath and bloody proud of it!
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. 👍

Is the stem square in cross-section?
Yes it is! What are you thinking Dove?
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?
