Banana Trees Care

tonyp12txApril 22, 2008


I have several Banana trees around our pool and was wondering if they might need to be fertilized. I do water regularly but over the past 2 years they are growing shorter every year.

(they get cut back for the winter)

Anyone have experience with banana trees?

I'm surprised noone answered this yet. Bananas are heavy feeders. They like lots of sun (but in parts of Texas, they may need a little shade), lots of water, and lots of fertilizer. You can fertilize every week. Go to the Bananas forum here, for more info.

Here is a link that might be useful: Lots of information here.
