Bananas Free in Cincinnati

daryljurassic(OHIO 6a)September 27, 2008

I will be digging up my non cold hardy bananas in the next couple weeks and composting them unless somebody wants some or all. After dividing, there should be 12+ cavendishes and a few zebrina bananas. Good sized diameter and some up to 8 feet tall. The basjoos are a little ratty after the windstorm 2 weeks ago but the cavendishes seem to have faired well. No basjoos btw...Also have elephant ears - soon to be bulbs - very large, as well as various tropical seeds from 2008 - large purple leaved cana,moon flower, hummingbird flower.

I have way too many ,as usual,to bring in for the winter. They do make good compost but would prefer to give them away. Wish I had a green house...

I live in northern Missouri and have raised bananas for several years. Would be interested in obtaining one of the small cavendish. Email me details on how to obtain one. I also am president of our local garden club and may have other members interested in obtaining corms or other seeds. My email is

Just to update, because of the upcoming warm weather I haven't don't anything with the plants yet. Sorry, but shipping anything is out of the question...(I'm a nice guy, but not that nice lol). If somebody just wants some EE bulbs, I can do those anytime, but I may wait a couple more weeks on the bananas unless the weather changes. Please have an email address so we can make arrangements.
