Banana to sort out

Thursday turned out to be our second mildest day of the month with a daily average temperature of 12.4°C. This has only been higher on the third of the month with 13.6°C. 

The mild weather has lulled me into a false sense of security and I've yet to provide any protection to our banana plant growing in our garden border. It suffered badly in last year’s severe winter and only after a long wait in spring did it manage to produce some new shoots from around the base of the plant. 
So although this border is in the process of a makeover I’ll give the banana some protection for winter with some straw around its root to protect it from the worst of the cold weather.
