Where do you live.? I cannot imagine what the postage would be on a tub of dirt large enough to hold a three foot banana tree (and that’s the key. It is a tree and will grow thru your roof if fed, watered, lit and sung to nicely.)

The only possibility is to find a local nursery who will deliver..collect your tax rebate first.

The one I had started small and, if memory holds, grew too fast. I finally threw it away.

Any mail-order house will send you a little guy. Are you hoping to get bananas?

if you get a older plant just wack it off to about a foot tall then ship. The older ones grow back to there original size in a season. I cut my down each year and they grow back to about 12 feet each season. The babies grow back each year about 2 feet taller than the previous year.
