Plant Musa Basjoo Now?

finnpond(7b8aWa)October 13, 2012

I have a 5 foot Basjoo in a pot that has been outdoors all summer. Can I plant it in the ground now? Zone 7/8... I have a bog garden where I was growing taro, would that be too wet for the Basjoo?

thanks, Dave

I think you would be taking a rish in any zone except maybe 10/11 planting out now the roots just don't have time to get established before the temps drop. If you do decide to plant I would mulch HEAVY around the base
