Just finished Overwintering Windmill & Bananas
Colder weather on its way for NYC (Bronx). Hopefully where in the same pattern as last year. Decided to overwinter the tropicicals today. The Bananas: I cut the leaves off the bananas and wrapped the stalks with insulation and covered with white plastic bags. Trying to get a head start next spring. I heard on the internet some people use this method.
I left the fronds on the windmill exposed for now. covered the trunk with leaves & a black garbage bag. Can be easilly removed for the warmer days to be dried out. This is the first year that the windmill has been planted, its never been exposed to frost. It was shipped last spring from Georgia, so im sure its not cold that cold hardy!
This my first year with tropicals, and learning from trial & Error! So any advice and critisism is wanted. Thanks in advance, Robert
