Plant thief strikes again

UK: Stolen banana plants in Falmouth

In Falmouth, a plant thief has struck again, this time stealing £250 worth of banana plants in a week. The tropical plants were stolen from the public Fox Rosehill gardens off Melville Road.

Matt Stannard, from Cormac's gardening team: "The gardens are there for absolutely everybody to enjoy. What we don't want is people taking plants away and selling them on. It's something that we can't afford."

This latest incident is not the first time the town's plants have been the target of robberies. On the morning of Tuesday, May 8, a man in a flat cap was spotted filling a carrier bag with "exotic succulents" stolen from Falmouth's seafront. The plants were largely planted by volunteers during the town's Spring Festival. explains how many varied species from Australia, New Zealand and South America have been successfully introduced to the mild Cornish climate including lemon, banana and eucalyptus trees, bamboos, agaves and a wide variety of palms.
