Uncovering Musa Basjoo
I'm wondering when I uncover my Musa Basjoo.... Last fall I cut the trunk down to 3' wrapped it in bubble wrap then placed a barrel (with the bottom removed) over it and filled it with leaves. I just checked it today and it looks like about a foot of the trunk has gotten soft and mushy but from there on downward it feels firm and plump. I'm near Detroit so only starting to get above freezing over night temps now. Do I wait till the end of May (our traditional frost free date to uncover) or sometime before that?
