Re: Time to put the bananas to sleep for the Winter
Good evening folks. I read bigdog's first post about how he does his overwintering. Looking at his pictures, the leaves are still very healthy. So am I correct that even if they're not dormant yet, you can start digging and knocking the soil around the roots? When you do this and put them in a cold free-frost dark area and not even a single drop of water, that's the time the banana tree will go dormant. Am I correct?
Oh, I also couldn't visualize how to plant them in spring if they are like 7 ft tall since their roots are short or are dead. How will it be able to grasp the soil? Do you stake it?
