It's not too late to winterize bananas!

If your life is like mine, you have so many things going on at once that before you know it there's snow on the ground and your plants are covered in it! Not to fear, as long as the ground has not froze hard down to the roots, cold hardy bananas should be fine! Today I finally winterized my pink velvet banana and expect it to start shooting up stalks in the spring.

Hi:
It is good to find someone else who grows bananas in Virginia. I had a plant since year 2008. This year it gave me a lot of baby shoots. Some grew about 2 feet tall and I transplanted them into the ground, sometime in September. I covered them with maple leaves for fall, but they look totally rotted. Do you think I will get new growth in Spring and summer?
