Getting colder!

Wednesday was our coldest day of autumn so far with the temperature struggling up to just 5°C. I decided it was time to protect the roots of our banana plants. The old stems were cut back to almost ground level.

This produced some material for the compost heap. The remaining stumps were then covered with plenty of straw to provide protection from the winter frosts.

It will be late spring before I remove the straw as hopefully the plants manage to survive another winter.
