    Hi @Mary . I think your are right, the cutting roots off method is for Ensete. Musa basjoo is root hardy down to -10°C, meaning it will survive and quickly regrow from the ground. If you want to protect the height that it has achieved this year you can wrap the stem in horticultural fleece over winter. Musa basjoo is a VERY resilient banana plant. Mine survived -5°C last winter with no protection at all 😁
