Banana plant soil.

tristanpierson(6b)January 20, 2013

I live in eastern Oregon and have soil that has a lot of clay in it. It's nice because it holds water. But, do I need to mix in sand or something for bananas?

My large ensete bananas do great in common garden soil, but it would always help to add as much humus and organic matter as you can, and a little sand so that they drain well.
