Re: Time to put the bananas to sleep for the Winter
Hi everyone. I'm hooked. I grew my first Musa basjoo this year and it's now at least 7 feet tall. Here's were I need help. The tree is in the ground. I'm in zone 6 along the Connecticut coast. The catalog where I bought the sappling claims the plant can withstand -20 degrees F. It seems hard to believe. What should I do to protect this beautiful banana tree? I was able to get one of the pups transplanted to a pot that I could bring in just in case. I know you folks will be able to guide me. Thanks!
