The red Abyssinian banana (Ensete ventricosum ‘Maurelii’) is a magnificent plant with huge red-tinged leaves, ideal as the centrepiece in a tropical-themed border. However, it won’t survive any frost, so you need to take action in autumn to ensure it survives the winter. Find out how to dig it up in this short Gardeners’ World video guide featuring Monty Don.
