Digging up Bananas in the winter?
Being in 7b, I can't grow most types of bananas outside without protection, and I don't have much indoor space either. However, I've read about how some people dig up bananas in the fall, insulate them, and store them for the winter in a crawlspace or garage.
Question #1: What materials (insulation, etc.) would I need to do this?
Question #2: How would I go about this? Should I cut off the leaves? Leave dirt on the roots?
Thanks in advance for your time.
