I am an organic grower of different tropical and subtropical plants including, to date, seven varieties of bananas.
I grow everything using nothing but organic products. I work with and test different organic fertilizers with specific soil amendments.
Great results with minimum harm to the environment producing high quality fruit.
The 28 degree weather we had here is Central Florida the other day damaged the taller varieties but I was able to cover most of the dawrf ones with frost cloth and they show very little damage for which I am happy.
In several areas I built frame so the cloth did not come in contact with the leaves and those plants show no damage at all. It a real trial handling 30 foot square sections of frost cloth to cover them though.

Do any of the methods at this link describe your approach to organic gardening: Are you gardening organically? ?
