It's a very friendly & info-packed site with special sections devoted to cold-hardy bananas & over-wintering techniques! If ya have any questions about using the forum, just ask.
Thanks to all! Excuse me if my English isn't so good as your - i haven't had much practice! But i understand very well.
Sigulda is town where my relatives have private house with small garden, but i live in capital of Latvia - Riga. I think that in Canada are warmer or hotter summers. In Sigulda even +75 (F) are rare and nights are often below +50 (F). Last two summers were so cold that even Yucca guatemalensis didn't grow at least one new leaf, just as bamboo Phyllostachys bissetii. Next summer i will grow my bananas (some sort of dwarf form) in greenhouse.
