In Ground Overwintering Varieties
I was wondering if you good folks could helpmedecide what to do regarding overwintering a few of my bananas.
I have a Sikkimensis which I plan to leave in the ground. I also have 2 Ice Cream (aka Blue Java) potted, they are small, maybe only 2-3 feet, what is the hardiness of those??
Last, I have a Lasiocarpa (golden Lotus Banana), I hear these are hardy, any experiences??
I am in zone 6, southern Mass, in ground overwintering will be with the heavy mulching with pine bark mulch, as well as the cage full o' leaves deal to try to save as much stalk height as possible. Inside overwintering will probably be in pot with zero water and light, as I lost all my bananas last winter by saving bareroot wrapped in plastic.
Thanks in advance
