Indian Strawberry (Duchesnea Indica Tuttifrutti) - Start Strawberry seeds for this rare ground cover plant that will get lots of attention! It is an Indian Strawberry plant with lovely yellow blooms, and it produces small red Strawberries all summer long on a creeping evergreen carpet. Indian Strawberry is well-suited for hanging over a wall or as a ground cover plant. Indian Strawberry ground cover is naturalized throughout the United States, and it is found growing in shady places in woods and grassy slopes. Indian Strawberry prefers a moist, but well-drained soil in a partially sunny position. Once Indian Strawberry plants are established, the matted root sends out runners to set new plants. Indian Strawberry leaves are light green and finely haired. Indian Strawberry flowers are small, yellow, and are 5 petaled. They first appear in April and will bloom throughout the summer until fall. The fruit is small, about 1/2 inch round. It is edible, but many say the taste is not noteworthy. Birds, however, love the red fruit. Another common name for this variety is Mock Strawberry ground cover.

Sow Indian Strawberry seeds from January to April indoors. Use quality seed starter mix, and small pots or starter trays. Sow the Strawberry seeds on the surface and press the seed into the mix. Keep the soil damp but not wet, and protect the Indian Strawberry ground cover seeds from direct light. Seal the starter tray or pots inside a plastic bag until after germination. When the Strawberry seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them into 3 inch pots, and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. After all danger of frost has passed, harden the young Mock Strawberry plant over a period of 7 - 10 days before planting outdoors in its permanent location.

LATIN NAME

Musa Ensete

Banana (Musa Ensete) - This Musa Ensete bush is cold hardy into and north of USDA Hardiness Zone 8. Regardless of your climate, you can always enjoy banana type bushes in containers or in greenhouses or as tender perennials. If you crave amazing, tropical, bold-textured foliage and exotic flowers in your garden, you should try growing your own banana bush!

Musa ensete is one of the hardiest types of the Musa family and has very large seeds. This small tree is ideal for conservatories, patios, or as a large potted plant. Only grows about 6 feet tall and is grown for its foliage; unfortunately, no bananas on Musa Ensete. Decorative, huge leaves rivalling any expensive mature house plants. Grows 3 feet in the first four months after seed germination!

Sow anytime of year after soaking the seeds for 24 hours in lukewarm water. Use a peat based seed compost and sow 1/4 inch deep. After sowing, seal the seed container inside a polythene bag in order to keep the compost moist. Germination is slow and erratic and can take 1 - 6 months at 80F. As each seed germinates, transfer it to a 3 in pot of good free draining compost, taking care not to damage the fragile roots. Pot on as required, the larger the container the larger the plant will grow.

Grow Musa ensete bush in warm, well lit conditions. During summer they can be stood outside or planted in the border but should be brought into well lit frost free conditions for the winter when it should be kept moderately dry. Some discoloration of the leaf ends may occur through the winter months but this won't harm the plant.

LATIN NAME

Musa Velutina

Banana (Musa Velutina) - There's something mystical about a pink velvet banana that will make your neighbors want one of these special banana trees too. Let Musa velutina be your first introduction to hardy bananas and let it become a favorite in your summer garden. Rarely exceeding 3 feet tall, Musa velutina produces copious flower stalks near the top of the trunk, starting in late summer. Each stalk is soon home to attractive clusters of small, pink, velvet bananas, which peel themselves when ripe.

Once established, they seem to be quite winter-hardy. Until well-established, a cage of shredded leaves around the trunk in the winter months should do the trick. Grow as a perennial in zones 7b - 10 or greenhouse in winter months. Musa Veluntina will grow in full sun to partial shade.

The cinnamon scent, exotic leaves and extraordinary color of the musa velutina transforms any garden into a tropical oasis. It is an exotic type of banana tree which produces mysterious pink fruits instead of the usual yellow bananas we know. Although the actual flesh of the fruit is edible, the numerous large and small seeds are not which makes the consumption virtually impossible. Nevertheless, it is striking just in its appearance and will definitely spice up any garden.

To plant this banana seed, it is recommended to roughen the seed with sandpaper and keep it in water (room temperature) for about 12 - 24 hours before planting it. Special cultivating soil or coconut fibre is essential as these types of soil are particularly permeable. It is crucial to always keep the soil damp after planting the seed which should be fully covered in earth about 1/4 inch deep.

To enable the quick development of sprouts, plant the seed into a special breeding container to cultivate it and ensure that the temperature in the pot remains around 80 degrees. If cultivation at these temperatures is not possible, the sprouting process may take up to 10 weeks. The container should also be covered up by a transparent cover such as foil or glass but at the same time avoid mould by taking off the cover once every 3 days and letting a little air get to the soil.
