Have a banana

Comma (top) and Red Admiral on bananas

Waste not , want not - any over-ripe fruit goes in to the garden for the birds, insects, slugs and snails to enjoy. Over-ripe bananas are hung under one of my hebes and usually attract a few moths at night, and during the day, loads of flies and the occasional butterfly. The nack is to puncture each banana, either by stabbing it in several places or to make a shallow cut down the length of it (or both!).
