Spent the afternoon preparing my #banana for this week's cold snap. #winterready. First I cut all the leaves off, then surrounded the stems with chicken wire supported by a bamboo cane frame. Fill this with straw and finally, to keep the straw dry, a bucket for a hat!
@gjones It's not that much trouble really. This is its third winter in the ground. I didn't bother protecting it for the first winter so it got cut to the ground. The stems you see are two years growth with minimal additional watering. Looking forward to seeing how large it gets next year!
