Container for Cavendish types, free soil for the hardier (basjoo, Orinoco, sikkimensis...)

What are your annual winter lowest tempeartures (for the past about 10 years or so)...?

It depends, some flower earlier (Cavendishes), because I have them in the warm place for winter, some fruit later (basjoos in the soil...)
One more thing, it's Slovak, not Slovakian. ...
Slovak climate would be:
Winter lowest 2009 >>> -13C (about 1 night,then it gradually fell to -1C)
Summer highest 2008 >>> 34,5C

lowest -19 but its coldest sinds 10 years
normaly max -10
summer i think 34

best 2 put not hardy in container? end dig it in for summer.
or alsow free soil en dig it up fot winter
