Musa basjoo grows to the size of a small tree, so gardeners are often shocked when the foliage dies back when the first frosts arrive. This is nothing to worry about, though – think of it as an enormous herbaceous perennial that, in the UK climate, dies back in winter to the roots and will produce new growth in spring. It is important to wrap with fleece during the cold winter months
When temperatures warm in spring the plant will grow quickly to produce large, exotic leaves and will appreciate regular watering and feeding to sustain this growth.
For best results, grow in full sun or partial shade in moist, well-drained soil.
Musa basjoo holds the Royal Horticultural Society’s prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
