Unwrapping The Banana Plants
The banana plants have been under a protective wrapping of horticultural fleece since the 6th November, see blog entry 'Wrapped Up Using A Butcher's Knot'.
With the weather warming up and the risk of hard frost diminishing, the bananas have started to break free from their wrapping pushing it upwards and bursting out of the top, signaling to the gardeners that it is time to be unwrapped.
Ali spent a few hours this morning removing the fleece and releasing them from the restrictive covering, they seem to be breathing a sigh of relief as the warm air encircled their leaves and trunks.
