Taking The Wrapping Off

It's the last week in May so it must be time to unwrap our hardy banana, Musa basjoo. Unlike previous years, it has not started to burst out of its fleece wrapping, so did it survive our very cold winter?

Ady and Ali carefully unwrapped it and found signs of life, although one of the stems had died.
Once a stem flowers, see blog entry 15th September 2010 'Banana Flower', it dies but there are two new stems to replace it.
