Ensete ventricosum seeds

£2.25

Seed packet of 10x Ensete ventricosum seeds.

Ensete ventricosum, the Abyssinian Banana, is an imposing and dramatic plant, and one that is easy to grow. It makes the perfect accent plant in a sub-tropical garden border, or it can be grown as a superb potted plant. Either way, the growth rate is astonishing and a large plant can easily be raised from seed in a single season.

Large, bright green paddle shaped leaves and enhanced by the bright red stripe running down the central branch.

Frost tender, so either treat these as an annual and raised from seed each year, or lift and overwinter frost free.

Ensete ventricosum, the Abyssinian Banana, is an imposing and dramatic plant, and one that is easy to grow. It makes the perfect accent plant in a sub-tropical garden border, or it can be grown as a superb potted plant.

Large, bright green paddle shaped leaves and enhanced by the bright red stripe running down the central branch.

Frost tender, so either treat these as an annual and raised from seed each year, or lift and overwinter frost free. Soak the seeds for 24 hours before sowing at 25-30 degrees. It has been reported that fluctuating temperatures can speed up germination, so perhaps turn off the heated propagator at night.
