Joy Banana tree winter care info

Hey everyone,


So I live in Zone 8 A (central texas). I had 2 banana trees that were planted in ground and they died in the winter. This time i am planting it in a pot. How do I winterize it (take care of it in the winter)? Winter temps. 20-40 degrees. Sometimes less or more than 20-40

I am in the same boat as you. I have my plants in pots. Then late fall I will bring them into the garage. My problem comes if the plant is too tall. The header on my garage is only 7 feet. So I still may need to dig some up. If I do need to dig up some plants I will wrap the root ball with landscapers cloth and prop the plant up inside. Then come spring replant again in the ground or in the pot.

My first question is how you protected the plants in the ground. My bananas (Orinoco, Ice Cream, Raja Puri, and Rojo) can manage 20 degrees if I cut off their tops and cover them. Personally, I'd much rather cover them occasionally then put them in pots.
