By late June I should have some banana trunks big enough....... But there should be a way to seal the ends to hold the water in.

Kinda weird but something fun to try with the banana grove..... Lol

Years ago I cut down about a dozen banana trees after they froze in early winter. I decided to keep them until they dried out, cut them up and burn them in the fireplace. THEY NEVER DRIED OUT!

I too want to try growing banana plants!
Are they all not edible? It would be nice to find a kind of banana plant that that produces edible fruits, and can be grown in zone 5/6 ....but then I'd have to worry about monkeys!
