Mitre 10 Speaker Series - Let's Grow Bananas with Vance Hooper

Bananas have been growing in New Zealand for more than 100 years – now it’s time to learn how you can add a taste of the tropics to your own garden.

Historically, growing bananas has been dependent on limited microclimates, but with careful variety selections and a few key cultural factors, the fruit – botanically a berry – can be grown more widely.

Vance will share tips on banana propagation, establishment and ongoing garden culture to get the best out of these fresh-and-fruity jungle beauties.
