Overwintering a banana in zone 5a
Has anyone in the Chicago area overwintered a banana in a pot? I plan on digging it up and wrapping the root ball with plastic and storing it in my basement. But the more I look at it I really don't want to cut it back in the spring and would like to try and keep it in a south facing window in a very large pot, then putting it back out in the summer. I have it growing in a whiskey barrel right now and it has 5 pups. This is my first banana. I have a musa 'Rowe Red'
