Question: 773-2512
We bought a hardy five foot banana tree locally. I do not trust New England winters. What do you figure? Marty, Norwich, CT

Mort's Answer:
Although we are experiencing global warming, we can get drastic changes from time to time. You can build a tent each winter to cover the tree. Plant it on the southern side of a structure for protection from the winter wind. Add a third sand to your soil mix for good drainage.
