The Q&A Archives: banana tree

Question: I bought 2 dwarf banana trees from Home Depot last week. The leaves are turning yellow and brown? What should I do they look pretty sad?

Answer: Linda,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

Sounds like they need to be watered a little more. Also don't apply too much dry fertilizer as this can burn roots. With moist but not soggy soil and moderate fertilizing with a soluble product such as Miracle Gro they should recover and be fine in a week or two.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
