Re: Time to put the bananas to sleep for the Winter
I just read through the whole thread for the first time, and I agree this is one of the best threads on the forum. I hope this one keeps going - full of good info. After doing a lot of reading on this forum I've decided to dig up a lot of my larger bananas this year and preserve the full p-stem. I figure I'm young and might as well do the grunt work on saving them while I can - and it'll pay off in the spring with a nice full p-stem growing again.
