Thread: Bannana Trees

    Bannana Trees

    These are my mothers Bannana trees They haven't borne any fruit this year. They didn't get enough water,due to watering restrictions. We have to have enough water for the golf course , estates and condos on the water. Otherwise how would we employ all those anti pollution people.

    Shame about not getting any fruit of the trees. Bananas are so much nicer than the bought ones.

    I had to dig a clump of mine out just recent as they were coming too close to the house and filling up my gutters and interfering with the TV aerial.
    I grew muscles where I did not think would be possible. This is the offending clump I dug out, shame they were lovely bananas. but I have another one.


    I have a tank which collects my 'grey water' from the bath, shower and laundry which is then utilised in the garden.

    Nice Banana Tree, but a much nicer Poinsettia. Good golly that is one big Poinsettia. I knew they could get quite big, but that one (?) is humongous! AND in BLOOM!

    Sometime i think I may be living on the worng end of the earth!

    Ditto on the poinsettia. I have one in the basement (3 went out this summer and 1 came in--but it's the biggest one)--anywho, I think that if it saw your photo that it would like to go to winter camp in Australia and never come back.

    Npublici- Happy B-Day !

    The picture was taken in September before a gale wind and the bananas have been eaten and only the lower blooms are now left on the poinsettia which will be getting pruned in about a fortnight or so.
