It's during these cold, damp days that I plan the changes in my garden for the upcoming year. It's what gets me thru the winter. I am tossing around the idea of moving my Musa sikkimensis (Hookeri) clump. It is 4 years old and got rather large this past summer. I underestimated it's size potential and planted it too close to my house (yet another learning opportunity). It has to lean out from under the eave and I fear what a few more years of growth will do. Although, the new pups seem to be growing away from the house. The problem is that I suspect it will be a very large root and I don't want to cut the 5 foot stalks I have over wintered. I am hoping for a bloom this year. I am torn between trying to move it in early Spring, before it starts growing, or in the Fall. I could cut it down then and just deal with the tubour. Or I could leave well enough alone and hope the new pups keep moving farther from the house. Has anyone moved a large banana before? Any thoughts? In addition to the M. sikkimensis, I have included a photo of my dwarf Musa acuminata who keeps me company in the livingroom over winter!
