Product Description

Bananas have become very popular in the last few years, for their large architectural leaves as opposed to their fruit!

The Red Abyssinian Banana is a relative newcomer, and brings with it a stunning colour addition - the huge paddle shaped leaves that can reach 75cm long in a season are heavily veined burgundy red, and in full sun the leaf edges have a very red tinge.

Grow in large heavy pots for stability, in full sun and warm spots, and feed and water well in June-August when they grow quickly. Borderline hardy, so in late Autumn, allow leaves to die back and cut stem to 20cm tall, and bring somewhere frost free till following May. Keep dry, and new leaves should quickly emerge next year.

What Is Supplied

Item 680065 supplied as:
Supplied as 1L potted plant c. 70-100cm tall

Very bad at telling you and not replying to emails and I may not order again from them
YouGarden Comments
Good Morning,

Firstly, let me apologise for the delay in responding to your email. We are currently experiencing a very high volume of emails as it is one of the busiest times of year for us. Unfortunately, there has been some unexpected staff absence due to illness which has affected our response times in the short term. I am very sorry for any inconvenience caused by this. I am going to send a direct e-mail to you this morning, please respond with your query.

A replacement plant was sent out to me immediately.
Product:
This was a replacement plant & a lot bigger than the previous one & had more leaves too although one leaf was still broken while the others were a bit torn & a yellowish colour due to the ordeal that it went through on its journey to me. l think You Garden should put a support mechanism in place inside the boxes including taping the plants to it like another company that l shopped with did to prevent plants from moving around.

The plant took a little while to arrive but the packaging was great.
Product:
The plant is stunning and just what I have been looking for!
Only problem was one of the leaves had been folded against the box it arrived in and therefore is now bent that way but it is still healthy and looks fine!

Great Plants but I only wanted one, a bad communication system when you call the numbers on the website. Still, no one can be perfect. My poor geraniums for my hanging baskets did not last long. They might come back, so I am told by Peter. I donated the second red banana plant to a local old folks home and they love it.

YouGarden Comments
So sorry for the delay in getting this item to you. We did email you at the time (before you called) though?

As explained, there was a delay in receiving this from our supplier because the plants were not ready yet - as soon as they were mature enough to ship, we sent them to you.
