Tropical storm protection
I have 21 banana plants in the ground, they all are first year plants, ranging from 5' to 11', all are doing great....My question is what would be the best thing to do to protect them from the strong winds....It looks like Ernesto will come right over the top of me, I live in SE North Carolina. Winds in the storm now is 60mph and gaining strength.
Would I be better off to cut some of the leaves off, as I plant to overwinter most....Or should I let nature takes it's course. I don't want them to break at the bottom.
