banana tree care

Posted by Nichole , Apr 26,2005,03:09       Forum

I recently purchased a banana tree from my local grocer. It had been left outside in a severe storm and the leaves are ratted and torn. I thought I might have a shot at nursing it back to health, but I don't know how to care for one. First, should I cut back the injured leaves? What type of light, fertilizer, and watering regimine will it require? Any extra advice? I really appreciate it.
