What is the best way to care for baby banana plants so that they survive the winter?

I have several baby banana plants in my garden and I am afraid the winter will kill them.

Bananas are tropical plants so the best way to care for baby banana plants so that they survive the winter is to not leave them out in the cold. If they are potted, just put them inside. If they are in the ground dig them up, put them in a pot and then put them inside.

If you live where winter will kill outdoor tropical plants, just pot banana plants and bring them indoors. Make sure to water through the winter.

Several products are available online and in gardening stores that will protect plants from the harsh temparatures. Most likely, you will need to "tent" or cover your plants.

In climates other than Florida or California, baby bananas plants need to be wrapped up for the winter. You may need to harvest them and bring them inside.

Keep baby banana plants indoors over the winter with pleanty of light and a temp of atleast 85 degrees. You can use a heat lamp to provide this.

No problem. Keep only a few baby plants and keep the mother plant till their natural fertility. Usually the baby banana trees will be cut off for more fertility rate of the mother plants of banana trees. If you want baby banana planta then keep them covered or feed them the right feeding procedure.
