|Removing The Banana Plant|
Not wanting to wait until the first frosts arrive, the team have been digging out the tender plants that need winter protection and taking them back to the greenhouse.
|Suited And Booted|
One of the plants, the Red Abyssinia Banana, Ensete ventricosum 'Maurelii', causes a slight problem due to its close proximity to the large leafed Rice Paper Plant, Tetrapanax papyrifer 'Rex'. Due to the dust on the underside of the Tetrapanax leaves, which can cause irritation to the lungs and eyes, coveralls, goggles and a face mask are worn when digging out the banana plant. This time it was Danny's turn to adorn the outfit as he dug out the plant.
|Albizia In The Border|
Working their way along the border, Ali and Danny carefully dig out all the remaining tender plants, even the small Albizia trees, and transport them back to the greenhouse.

|The Last Of Five Trailers|
Over two days the team have filled up the trailer five time with plants big and small, potted them in to containers and placed them under glass where they will remain until next June.
