Mulching Musa Basjoo's!!!!

diana55(z8a)April 16, 2007

What kind of "Mulch" should I use for Musa Basjoo's? I live in Zone 8 and what do you recommend for my Banana's next winter? Should I buy the store bought mulch? I want to get ahead of the game for next year. I mulched his winter and there are no signs of them coming back yet!!! I sure hope hey do!!! If not that's okay because I bought some new Banana's today, just incase they don't. Thank you!!! Diana55

Hey!! Congrats on your new bananas.. What did you get??? As far as mulch goes ..use what is native to your area.. leaf mold, grass clippings, chopped up banana leaves...Think of the forest floor or tropics what falls and lays there is mulch..
