In the Garden
Found in Pakistan and India, the Indian Banyan is a tropical tree that, left to its own devices, can grow to an immense canopy size upward of 800m in diameter. The tree develops aerial roots that turn into woody trunks once they reach the ground.
As a tropical tree this species will need to be kept warm over winter in the cooler areas. It prefers a moist well draining soil but is drought tolerant. It will benefit from regular feeds.
