Hi Sue,
The banana plants arrived this morning. They were in fantastic condition, the pots were dry but the plants weren’t wilted at all, and were all perfect, no breakages. Great packaging too by the way, made it extremely easy to get them out and unwrapped without any casualties, it’s the first time I’ve ordered plants by mail with them arriving in such good condition. They’re all now planted nice and deep in rich soil, with a good soaking and some seasol, then mulched, watered again, and the weather here today is perfect for it, nice and cloudy with predicted showers. I’m very happy with them.
Thankyou so much.


Hi Sue,
Just to let you know that the latest 3 bananas (and covers) arrived this morning in excellent condition. The tracking system made it very easy to anticipate delivery.
The last banana I ordered, the Blue Java, is doing fantastically well, and performing beyond all expectations! Only less than 4 months since planting and already it is over 2m tall and is now throwing out 3 suckers.
I have no hesitation in recommending your business to anyone who wants to grow their own bananas. Your service and products are exemplary.
I look forward to planting and enjoying these lovely bananas. Many thanks indeed.


Hello Sue,
We’ve received the nanas!! All arrived in good condition and now reside in the back corner of our suburban plot – the neighbours are happy and grateful!!


Thank-you Sue,
I received it this morning and it looks great!
Thank-you very much for your communication throughout the process, made the whole thing so easy, really appreciate it.


Hi Sue,
I wrote on my blog about the banana permit process in the hope others may not be so intimidated by what’s involved – you really did help with all your feedback. The process is somewhat daunting if you’ve never done it before. Your website (especially the FAQ’s) was helpful in that regard, but then you talked me through the process through our emails too. It really did help, so thank you. I hope others are encouraged now to get their own banana stock.
I’m really happy with our two banana plants. I think the setback with the Ladyfinger was location, as the heat deflecting from the garden shed created a dry heat instead of a humid heat. Placing it near a bunch of other plants changed all that. The growth has increased two-fold almost immediately, and that’s despite being relocated. I can’t believe how quickly the Dwarf Ducasse is growing however. A new leaf seems to be forming every second or third day.
thank you again for helping me through the process. Love my banana plants.


G’day Sue,
The order arrived Thursday in good shape. Thanks for your excellent service and advice. The previous orders have been transplanted from their pots to their in- ground positions and all are progressing well.
Thanks again. Wishing you a cyclone free summer.


Hi Sue,
The bananas arrived safely this morning, thank you. I am sure they have grown already today, lol.
Wishing you a lovely weekend!

Hi Sue,
Considering the arduous trip my poor little ladyfinger plant has made over the last few days, she’s in fabulous, gorgeous condition! Congratulations and well done on growing some fantastic produce. Particularly as you “Northeners” have had major setbacks recently.
