Plant banana plants in an area that provides shelter from wind. Make sure the soil is well-drained. If the banana plants are of a smaller species, plant them in containers that can be brought inside during the winter.
Plant banana plants during the late spring. In order to produce fruit, the plants need 19 months with temperatures between 60 and 81 degrees Fahrenheit.
Before planting, mix organic matter, such as compost, into the soil along with controlled-release fertilizer.
Plant the banana plants in the prepared soil.
Water the plants well after planting, particularly in the spring and summer. Reduce waterings during the autumn. In the winter, water only when the soil is dry.
Fertilize the plants regularly. Feed the plants a liquid fertilizer once a week. Reduce this during the fall and winter.
During the winter, wrap the plants in fleece to insulate them from the cold.
