What to do with my banana plant?



I live in a continental climate, with very cold winters. A couple of months ago I received a wonderful present, a banana plant. It's been growing really well, but now the winter is approaching, and I wonder what to do with it. What is the best place ti keep it, so that it would make it through the winter?

    after the plant leaves turn brown cut the stalk about 3 foot above the root, dig it up then wrap the roots in newspaper and store in a cool dry place . i stored mine under crawlspace by the next spring it was sprouting and ready to replant......

    A friend of ours dug a shallow hole ,the length of the plant , turned the plant on it's side and placed it in the ground and covered it with soil . In spring he would take the tree out of the soil and stand it upright. This was in Maryland where the winters were quite cold !
