Travellers Tree 10 seeds

Ravenala madagascariensis  or Travellers Tree is a common site in the tropics with its banana shaped leaves which are produced in a "fan" type pattern. The tree is called by it's common name for two reasons, first by offering the thirsty traveller water from within the leaf bases and secondly the tree tends to grow in an East/West plane as a helping compass guide. Easy enough to grow from seed but needs to be kept frost free and warm to survive UK winters.
