The cost of an order is based on plant variety and freight costs which are calculated on plant size, quantity and destination.
Delivery can be made using couriers or our spring/summer delivery service which will be provided at competitive rates. With respect to our delivery service, owing to access restrictions for our truck and trailer we may not be able to deliver door to door. We will however endeavour to deliver to the nearest suitable location and arrange date and time for delivery of each plant order. Alternatively, arrangements can also be made to collect plants. Please advise your preferred method for delivery or to collect by email.
The following banana plants are listed for sale from November through the summer season until February. If growing in a greenhouse or similar we can supply potted plants all year round. For an order to the South Island we will only ship plants via a courier, up to 55cm and will pack bare rooted. This is because freight costs have risen considerably this year and our regular courier is no longer able to assist us.
Plants are available either as stems or potted. For potted stock the following sizes are available:
Small: 17 cm pots. up to 0.5m in height
Medium: 23 cm pots, 0.5m - 1m in height
Large: 28cm pots. 1.0m – 1.5m in height
Specimen potted Banana up to 2.5m
The time of year to plant bananas outdoors is from mid-spring into the warmer months and
there will be plenty of stock for most varieties. Planting during the colder months means you
run the risk of losing your plants owing to lack of root growth and root rot.
