Story Title: Babaco

Babaco is a cold climate paw paw that grows well in garden beds or pots. To grow it correctly, you need to be sure you’re using the correct potting mix.

  • Unlike the tropical forms of paw paw, babaco grows from cuttings rather than from seed.
  • Place your cuttings into a pot of Scotts Performance Naturals. This soil includes a soil conditioner, as well as a range of nutrients.
  • As gardening becomes more scientific, companies are able to use technology to enhance natural processes, allowing for extra growth and performance.
  • Performance Naturals includes ingredients such as Blood n Bone, seaweed and mature manure. It also includes NatureN, a special ingredient that boosts growth and took 5 years of research to perfect.
