How do you store a banana tree for the winter?
Also to know is, how cold can banana plants tolerate?
Banana trees (even the cold tolerant ones) prefer warm humid temperatures for maximum growth. They grow fastest when the daytime highs are 80°F to 95°F (27°C to 35°C). Growth will slow drastically below 57°F (14°C). The tops of the plants will die back to the ground at the first sign of frost.
Likewise, people ask, how do you dig up a banana tree?
To remove the banana plant, dig up a circle of soil about 1 foot around the base. Insert the blade of a sharp shovel into the disturbed dirt at a 45-degree angle to sever any underground roots, working all the way around the plant. After the roots have been severed, you can easily pull the young banana plant up.
Musa basjoo Considered the most cold hardy banana! Its lush green foliage provides an outstanding tropical effect yet its roots survive much colder temperatures than other bananas.
