over-wintering outdoors in 7a/b
Hmmm -- I posted this a little while ago but it disappeared -- maybe it was considered off-topic or already answered sometime earlier, but I can't find anything relevant specifically to wintering-over outdoors.
I am new to posting on this forum but have been reading for a long time and have learned a lot about these wonderful plants. I have about 7 brugs in pots, and have been wintering them in the unheated garage -- successfully, although some people in this household just don't remember to close the door. Someone in my neighbourhood has a thriving group of banana trees in the ground and she mulches them heavily, wraps the stalks, etc. and they do really well. Could I do the same with brugs, I wonder? They are getting really large now, I am getting really old now, and it gets more difficult to get them into the house every fall.
Any thoughts would be gratefully received.
