How To Care

Basjoo Bananas prefer moist, well-draining soil. Water deeply when the soil begins to dry out. Bananas thrive in full sun, but can tolerant part sun as well. Add our balanced, slow release fertilizer when planting, in early spring, and late summer for best results. When grown in containers, fertilize up to 4 times per year.

In climates where the foliage gets cold damaged, simply prune back the dead foliage to allow new growth to emerge. Mulching this plant in will help the soil retain moisture and protect the plant in winter. Zones 5 and 6 may find it best to prune this tree back all the way to the ground after the first frost and mulch heavily (about 6 inches) to protect the roots.

Basjoo Bananas are hardy in zones 5-11. Cooler climates can plant in containers and move them inside in the winter to enjoy them year after year.

Banana plants are deer resistant.

Poor little guy

When I received my two banana trees they were both in a very sad state. Both of the plants had wilting leaves. They must've gotten hurt in shipping! :( I LOVED my coffee tree though, it was in perfect condition!
