Default Re: New to bananas - 2nd season question

As long as the corm didn't freeze the plant will come back. Many members here in the more northern zones cut their plants off at 3ft or 4 ft (or to the ground) then warp with insulation & straw and a thick layer of mulch on the ground. .... In your location the cold hardy nana varieties should do well without the warping. .... In the spring, before new leaves start, just cut off the upper part of the plant that is mushy/soft feeling as that part froze to speed up new leaf growth.



Your container plants are a different situation. I suggest putting those in the ground soon.
