Default Winter report

We are now entering the winter season so it's time for a new thread. These bananas took their first frost last week causing minimal damage. I planted them in June so I hope the p-stems are big enough to overwinter. The goal is not to get scared and dig them up like last year. Time will tell if they make it...

Dwarf Cavendish- day it was planted June 6

Nov 29 highs are around 55- 60F

Looks like a solid setup. If you're just using Xmas lights however, that may not be enough. I know most years the ground will freeze solid several inches down.

37.667910 - Thank you. It's a short "cold season" for them, warming up again in Feb.There is a big fan and a 1500w heater that's all it's using. Xmas lights are just for show =)

Thanks Hector. You know I was being told that here. It's gonna be bad and so far nothing, Our outside temps are going up to seasonal and rain in the forecast for next weekend.. We'll see how it turns out. I bet you're enjoying the days of sunshine now!




So Happy to be going back out to Sunny California this month! A well needed trip .
