I would cut all the leaves off and let it go semi dormant for the winter. Youc an store it in a cool basement with no light, or a garage that stays above freezing. As long as temps are within the 40-55 degree range the banana will not grow or die during the winter, and come back from where it left off next spring.

I cut my banana leaves because I cant deal with bugs anymore (they are annoying to say the least) and because I dont have alot of room and would rather use that room for plants that cant go dormant.

Good luck!
