    Don’t be fooled by the word ‘dwarf’ - because this banana is a fast grower in the right conditions! As an indoor plant its eventual size will be restricted to about three metres, but it will still need quite a bit of room to grow and spread out its gorgeous, rich green leaves. Given space and the right conditions however, ‘Dwarf Cavendish’ will make a great statement in a well lit part of your home or office.

    Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a simple nursery alternative), but we have a wide and wonderful range on our website to choose from.

  • Garden care: During the growing season water regularly and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser each month. Water sparingly in winter and top dress each spring. As the old leaves become shredded, trim them off. The plants should be potted into a larger pot in autumn and may be left outside from May to September (provided there is no risk of frost). They need winter protection and can be kept in a greenhouse or conservatory from October through to April.
