Banana Circles — 6 Comments

  1. After about two years the banana growth around the banana circle has been phenomenal — probably the fastest growth of any part of our garden. The plants love the moisture and all the nutrients from the compost pile in the center (no turning of the compost required). So I can highly recommend this method.

    • I read about this stuff almost daily. There are lots of great ideas on sites such as This particular idea was perfect for our situation. We had an unused area of the garden and needed some more bananas, so I jumped in and made one over 3 days. It would have gone faster except there was a big mound of clay dirt in the way that had to be shoveled by hand. We filled the hole with discarded ‘banana trash’ that someone threw on the side of the road. That’s the beginning of our compost pile in the center.
