It's in a pot after I separated it from Mum. It'll go in the greenhouse over winter. We did that with the big one last year using an obelisk, straw etc. That's now planted out in the garden. I'll wrap that one again this year but it'll need a much bigger frame! 😁 @vec
Easy as pie. Just be sure and get some of the rhizome. We cut ours down every fall, and throw them in the woods. Then, every spring we go get 4 or 5 babies out of the woods, and I cut them 2-3 inches from the ground, so I know I’m not getting any rhizome?? May be warmer here in Tennessee, but I have full confidence that you won’t have any trouble. Enjoy your time off!!
I overwintered successfully last year with straw and fleece. This year, it's an experimental method of fleece and bubble wrap as recommended by someone on a tropical forum.... it's a wait and see process. If it fails they are root hardy and will reshoot
This weekend I shall be unwrapping my #hardy #banana (the one in the background) and hoping she's made it through winter unscathed 🤞🏼she will be having a new permanent home in my soon to be created #tropical bed. I really hope she's ok 🤔
That's my next job. Going to risk it and try a different method this year with bubble wrap.... gasp ... waits for someone to say you can't do that 😂 I've been reading about a garden near me that uses it so here goes nothing lol
