This book will tell you how to grow the best species and cultivars of banans in tropical climates, those that do best in patio containers, the best-tasting, and those with ornamental flowers, foliage or fruits. It walks you through the basics of where to purchase your first plants, how to plant them, year-round care, and more. The color photos and information in the Quick Views section, describing 66 different varieties, will help you compare and select the best for your conditions. Bananas have exotic and ornamental foliage: many have edible and delicious fruit. They are excellent grown in the ground in mild climates and also grow well in containers in cooler northern climates. A few species are hardy enough to grow outdoors in temperate gardens. Even beginning gardeners can grow bananas with very little experience and expertise. Growing bananas can change your garden point of view.
