Wrap It Up

Having perfected their wrapping skills on the tea shed, Ady, Graham and Ying continue to wrap their way around the college, this time with the hardy banana on the herbaceous border. This banana, Musa bajoo, is the only banana plant that is left outside during the winter, but needs some protection to help it through. First, Ady bends the large leaves around the trunk.

Next, he wraps the trunk with loft insulation to keep the trunk warm during the coldest of nights.
After wrapping the trunk with loft insulation, he wraps the structure with fleece, tying it all up with string to complete the banana's winter protection. Snug as a bug in a rug.
