The banana tree is struggling a little with the strong winter wind here, but continues to grow, though we do now wish that we have not grown it within a tyre. It was a big struggle to get the three new plants growing from it off, but we managed, quadrupling the number of banana plants in our small garden. So far we have only eaten the leaves but do hope to get some fruit next season.
Fruit Salad plant
After initially struggling the fruit salad plant appears to have settled into its home under the Hibiscus Tree. It has doubled in size this year, and we hope that next year we may even get to taste some fruit.
