Default Over wintering in sand or bare root?

Hello to everyone on this good forum

I'm living in Europe near Black sea beach and trying to grow up some banana plants from Thailand. Some of them are in pots and others in ground already. The biggest one I have (around 2.5m) is in the ground. So I want to over winter them in the basement (a bunker with thick walls from WWII with 50-60F all year round).

My question is - what can be better for them in this case:

1. Save them bare root same here - Time to put the bananas to sleep for the Winter

2. Save them in wet or dry sand (same I read here -

If 1 - do I need to cover them with something or put them in any box?

We can have as low as -10(C) for a few days per year, so it will be hard to store them in the ground I think.

Thanks to everyone who can respond to me!
