Banana plant not thriving?

I have a banana plant  Musa Basjoo and from googling the internet I find that yellowing/browning leaves can be due to a variety of things. All year I have not known whether to water more or less etc... and each new leaf only looks good until the next comes out... it starts with yellow then rusty spots around the edge. Please can someone help me get this to look healthier?


  • Thanks. The plant is in a pot and we are on the south coast of England. It has struggled with this all year long.

    Get the biggest pot you can handle. Feed and water well during the season. Any nitrogenous fertiliser will do. (Nettle feed)

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
