|I planted a banana tree early spring it is
just now showing it has rooted
I have 6 leaves that have grown in since
March 4 in the last month.
I want to know how to care for my Banana Tree
so that I won't loose it come winter or first frost.
Can you give me some tips or ideas?
Thanks for your help and time,
Sandy G. TX
Your area is too far north for bananas to survive unprotected. I would either dig and pot it up for overwintering in a semi protected spot such as a garage, or mulch the base with a couple of feet of leaves in a wire ring or a foot of compost piled at the base. This way when the top dies back at the first freeze the base will survive to resprout the following spring.
