Last year, the frost got them quite early. They went brown overnight. Cut down all the growth and mulched heavily with manure. I've lost 2 of my smaller ones but everything else has come up @porto They are alot bigger this year ❤

Sounds the easiest option for me @vec ... Do you cover yours over?

Been told to wrap them if kept outside @vec ...

I put about 2 inches of dry manure on. That's it @porto The previous year they were in pots as I'd moved house. Left them in the pots covered with straw next to house wall and they came up bar one. This year I'm mulching again but also trying a tip I heard and filling pots with straw and turning the pots upside down on top of my tender plants for a bit of extra protection. We'll see what happens 👍

Not sure how you can wrap as at the first frost, they will go brown and flop as it makes them go mushy @porto I wrap the bananas but you have to take off the leaves and make a very well insulated cage around them
