Growing bananas in pots
I have a simple newbie question - Is it possible to get bananas to mature and fruit in a pot? Or does it have to go in the ground?
I currently have a Rajapuri (and would like to get some other types of banana) in a 17" clay pot. The main reason I would prefer a pot is that I could take it in for the evenings in winter. I could always upgrade to a slightly bigger pot but only up until the point where two people could lift it. Since I'm in Zone 9 I don't know that I would want to dig it up to overwinter it since we only get a few days of hard frost here. I suppose I could always get a more cold hardy variety and put it in the ground though.
