|My five year old son would like to grow either coconuts or bananas. Can you help me find information on how to grow them and where I can purchase the seeds? Thank you.
|Coconuts grow on rather large palm trees so I'd suggest growing a banana plant instead. Seeds are not available, but small Musa (banana) plants are available from Oregon Exotics Nursery, 1065 Messinger Rd., Grants Pass, OR 97527.
Plants can grow 6'-8' tall when given protection from frost, a sunny site, and ample water during the growing season.
