Am in zone 6 and thought I would give this a second try. First attempt lasted about 3 months before i killed it.

Any tips specific to it on overwintering would really appreciate.

Re: Took my bananas outside. Is there now a problem?

sun is hitting the sides of the pots cooking the roots, you need to put something around the pots to block the sun

Re: Baby Banana question

They get sunburn just like we do. you have to let them gradually adjust to full sun. new leaves should be able to take it unless it was too small. pics always help

Re: Musa Basjoo Pseudostem cold Min temp

you are in zone 7. Way too early!! Cover back up! Many more nights coming cold enough to kill the leaves. when it stays cold longer the plant also.

Should not be getting any sun yet, or water.
