Re: Time to put the bananas to sleep for the Winter
Good point. The stem on mine is now 5ft & overall height is prolly just over 8ft. Going out now to dig it up & pot it. They do have shallow roots but the rootball is heavy. There might be some concern when you first plant it if there is a big wind storm ahead. I didn't plant any deeper than just above root ball.
How about a big stake next to it when you plant next spring!? I had no problem with wind taking it down this year, but I may put a treated 2X4 next to rootball & tie onto it next summer. Thanks for the idea...better safe than sorry!
Got a lite?
