It's the start of July and our exotics plants are growing at full speed. We've got a range of exotics growing in our visitor greenhouse in Mawdsley including Babaco Papaya, Dwarf Cavendish Banana, Super Dwarf Cavendish Banana & Cyan Ruby Banana.
As the banana was growing during winter when light was limited one of the flowers had not developed fully which is a common thing, so the fruit which developed from this did not hang correctly. To overcome this our Gardening Angel has hung the banana upside down as seen in the video to allow it to ripen slowly.
Take a look at our exotics growing guide and have a go at growing your own exotics.
