Climate Change, UK Climate Change

The very warm weather this week is brilliant news for the fruit on the banana plant growing in Eastbourne that I talked about recently.Finger-like bananas  have emerged which look really healthy so I am hoping they will ripen soon.


Its an amazing site  that I see every time I walk to the the Meads.I can’t get over how small the plant is – it actually doesn’t look that healthy but obviously is enjoying perfect conditions at the moment.dsc01668

If you are having similar success this summer with growing bananas do send me pics to share – any tips and advice on how to get the fruit to ripen would be great as well.
