Default Banana Trees

Anyone want some Banana Trees. I have an over abundance of these things and
would like to give them new homes rather than delete them out of the yard
altogether.

That's generous. I'd be interested in learning more.
When is the optimum time to transplant?
Are these the hardy banana?
Thanks - I'm going out of town for two weeks, so my hope is that these
are a fall transplant!

Sorry for the delay in response. These have proved to be hardy for me.
However I do build a cage around them and insulate with leaves. I find that
the plants get bigger and do better when you do that. As for fall
transplants. It's really the best time now to dig and move them. Otherwise
I'd say pot them up and put them in the ground next year. You want them to
develop a good root system before the winter.

Emailed you the other day...but haven't heard back. I'm very
interested in at least one of these.

Where are you located?

Thanks,
John
