Firstly the Japanese Fibre Banana neither comes from Japan, nor is it cultivated for fibre - so as common names, go, this is fairly inaccurate!
Hardy Banana, however, hits the nail squarely on the head as this giant herbaceous perennial has been know to come back from beneath ground after -20C. Typically, however, gardeners generally tend to try to keep as much stem as possible - a useful technique for this is illustrated here.
During the growing season Musa basjoo is almost impossible to overfeed or overwater and will repay your kindness with a new 3m long leaf every week.
*As the plants are quite delicate, it is impossible to ship them without damage. Therefore, the banana tree leaves are being cut before shipping to you. The new leaves will emerge fast.

Slightly underwhelmed by my musa basjoo that arrived today. I had seen such gorgeous specimens at the Palm Centre last Summer and it was these that had fuelled my desire to get one for the garden. Accepting that the leaves would be removed before transit, I thought that this would be a good time of year to buy one online, before the leaves start to appear. Not as tall as I’d expected, based on those I’d seen last year and more recently at the Palm Centre, but I’ve planted it in a sunny bed and am keeping my fingers crossed that it flourishes and produces lots of large luscious leaves. I’ll keep you updated!
have bought a banana plant every year for the past three years, starting from the very cheap size to the biggest - dearest size. none of the trees survived the winter despite protecting the plant and the past two winters here in the south being very mild. This is the last one I will be buying - I hope I am not wasting my money again.
<p>Received what I thought would be a cracking specimen looks dead now within a week what can I say </p><p style="margin-left:30px;"><strong style="color:#3f48cc;">Palm Centre Reply</strong><span style="color:#3f48cc;">: We're so sorry to hear you're not happy with your Banana Tree.

Therefore, the banana tree leaves are being cut before shipping to you. This is why maybe you meant by looking dead. New leaves will emerge soon as we're getting close for this time of the year where Musa basjoo grows quick and strong leaves.</span></span></p>
Planted one of these last year and it grew from a few inches high to around 6 feet - stunning plant and the centre piece of my exotic garden. Didn't expect it to survive our Yorkshire winter so didn't try to protect it but it survived anyway and has been putting leaves out for the past month. Each frost has killed the leaves but it's still going and hopefully the latest leaves will survive now it's mid-May.
