Banana plant in Coombe Woods

Last february when,if you remember, the weather was wet and windy and the mornings were chilly with ground frost, Terence the gardener was nurturing some tiny banana plants in a protective hessian sack.

Then the sun came out and the first leaves protruded and the stem grew until it became a giant banana plant as you can now see.

Unfortunately no actual bananas on the tree but a fine specimen .

Of course, if you have lived overseas or been on vacation you may know of other examples with actual fruit attached! Please let me know.
