Five Strong Men
The greenhouse is now full to bursting and the temperature outside is in the high 20's, time to move the banana plants outside and into the gardens for display, all that is needed is five strong men.
Each banana has grown in size and increased in weight since they were placed in the greenhouse last autumn for winter storage. Great care is taken to move these huge plants through the door and on to the trailer.
Once loaded safely they are taken over to the herbaceous border where they will be planted this year. The following set of six photographs shows how one of the bananas was lifted into place.
