Great work BigDog, on both your process and the way you captured your process!
I also have an over wintering question,
This year I planted an unknown banana plant in container which I then place in the ground.
The plant did okay but really didn't grow tall about 3ft.
I now need to over winter because as many of you know it gets pretty cold north of the border.
Now the question, should I store it in its container as is or should I take it out and strip off all the leaves and dirt?
Either way I will place it in a cool dark dry place in my basement.
By the way here's a picture of it I took this summer.
I agree with Bananavilla's Quote:
...this thread is AAA+! Absolutely the best thread on overwintering bananas.
Hopefully this post is bookmarked by all would be cold climate banana growers.
