Last winter, our banana tree in the back yard died after a frost spell. We were hoping that it would come back in the spring, but it didn’t. Later in the spring I cut it off at the stump (that’s the round thing in the picture).
After many months of nothing, at the beginning of August, a new shoot came up. The banana tree is fighting back!
I will try to devise something to keep the frost away this coming winter to give it a fighting chance for next year.
