There are lots of different exotic plants that will need protecting or bringing indoors over the winter but for this case study we have decided to focus on banana plants. A little bit of time spent now could save you a lot of money come spring.
STEP 1: Wait until the first frost as bananas will keep on growing right up until that point.
STEP 2: Once the leaves start to show the first signs of frost damage, cut them ALL off so you are left with just the trunk.
STEP 3: Create cage using bamboo canes and chicken wire, stuff it with dry straw.
STEP 4: Use a sack or upturned bucket over the top to keep the worst of the wet off the straw.
