'Red Dacca' Banana Tree
It's the time of year to do some maintenance on Banana trees. I remove all the wind damaged branches and cut them up to use as mulch. It is essential to also remove most of the suckers or side shoots to allow all the energy to go into the main fruit producing stem. You leave three to grow for future fruit production.Once tidied up, I like to give them a dressing of blood and bone fertilizer and a bag of cow manure as well.
