How to protect Musa Blue Java in zone 7a

NYHamptons(7a/7b)October 17, 2012

Hi, I'm new at gardening with tropicals and I need to know how to protect it during a zone 7a/7b winter. Thanks! Don't tell me to bring it inside please though.

It won't make your winter unless its warmer then usual. Mulch it very well,build a hoop house and tie Christmas light around it and hope for the best.
