Default Re: red tiger bananas

Yea, no mulch last winter. It was more neglect than experimentation. They were in a slight micro climate, I guess. On the south side of my deck about 3ft. from my house. You can see one leaf in pic. 004 in my gallery if you look close. It's in front of my tiny Castor bean. That'll give ya an idea where they grew. They are said to be nearly as hardy as Basjoo. They should winter fine in your area. My buddy has been growing them for three years with the cage method. He had a flower last year!
