Default winter care

Hi: I recieved some small banana plants from a company called Wellsprings Garden. I am going to tranplant them into large containers for the winter. I no you are suppose to cut back on fertalizer but i am planing to use worm compost. I no it is a great fertalizer and plant food. I have been saving it for this purpose.What do you guys think? Thanks

You won't have any issues using worm compost. It will make those plants from Donovan(Wellspring Gardens) flourish.

One thing I observed is that you can't overfertilize with vermicompost. It isn't targeted with binding agents or what-so-ever it is, so the plant will always take as much as it needs, thus giving it the best nourishment of all.

Everything sounds great except for larger pots, that sounds like a bad case of root rot coming your way!!!! I have bought plants from wellspring they are "great" but the plants are really small, but that is why you get a deal on them. You will have better success with small pots........when the pot breaks then move them up to a bigger pot.
