Default brown edged leaves on musa basjoo

Hi Everyone! I'm brand new to banana growing and I need help! The leaves on my musa basjoo are brown on the edges and disintegrating. I just moved it from a pot with potting soil (wrong I know now ) to the ground planted in 1/3 quickrete sand, 1/3 manure, and 1/3 peat moss. The newer leaves are fine. Should I cut off all the brown edged ones? I just Sprinkled Miracle grow around the planting hole. I'm in zone 5 in Ohio.

If the new growth is ok, I would not worry much. If the other leaves still have some green, they are making food and might not need removed. If they are diseased, they do. We can help if you have a couple pics we could see. What is your location?
