Hi Minihoney. This plant was given to me by my next door neighbour who bought it from the N E C garden exhbition a few weeks ago. It's name is Musa Sikkimensis. I have been told they grow 6ft per year.

I have planted in a bigger pot than it arrived in . It is in a pot bcause my garden is part of the old river Nene bed and is mostly silt and sand. the pot is to retain moisture.
