Growing local

If possible going to transplant away from fence line as overhang and weed pressure isn't a viable option.

This is the most active gardening group I have ever been involved with Brendan. You should find lots of people to talk to here.

A suggestion - don't forget to add your "tags" when posting photos etc. This is the way the system finds discussions and such via search. I have added one to this photo but they could be added to all your other photos too.

Easy done: Options (top right of the photo), "edit your tags" from the drop down menu.

Or just dig out a pup or two - that worked for me.

Great, looking to relocate to a more suitable location just as its not the most accessible (we're working on it haha) but definitely will be transplanting these and trying my best to amend any stunted growth. Banana farming & gardening has been in my heritage for generations, my family still cultivate their bananas and greens in Papua New Guinea, so something that is very close to my heart. Thank you for the advice, such a great community!

Thanks for the advice Sophie! I'll check it out now

Good work! If hauling the banana plants is too heavy, you should be able to just transplant the corm (especially for the smaller ones) and it should grow back. At least this guy thinks so: Enjoy!

Important note about adding photos:

Always add photos using the "From my computer" option, even if you are on a mobile phone or other device.
