hi all , i was just walking through our local market and came across a stall selling off some plants , i couldnt resist getting a banana plant for a pound its about two foot high now question is can i keep it in the ground next year with protection ie cutting off the leaves and wrapping it up



Depends on the type. Musa basjoo and Musa lasiocarpa if lagged in winter will come away again. Other types, well?

If it's one of those beautiful purple leafed ones, then it's probably Ensete ventricosum 'Maurelii', not hardy, and must be protected from frost. Phil J
