Thanks for the warm welcome!
Actually no banana died, they survived, it was the palm trees that died so given how fast the bananas grow (and the fact that I love to eat bananas)
I decided to switch from using exclusively palm trees to mostly bananas to create that back yard tropical look!
You are all right, growing bananas is great fun since they are so rewarding to see them grow like that!
Will probably take the advice to dig up the Gran Nain and the Margarita for the winter.
What do you think about Ice Cream and California Gold, leave in ground or dig up?
