Default Thats a difficult question to answer...

I myself would like to know the answers. I also live in Georgia, but not in the city of Atlanta, I live in Calhoun and I grow palm trees and all different types of plants and flowers and cacti etc.. but dont have any banana trees growing here. They are mostly water so the tendency to freeze is there. I would suggest using burlap and Christmas light to keep the banana tree from freezing. Maybe even use cotton or a soft fabric to keep it warm. But also maybe bringing it in would be a better alternative. And yes you can move them into a pot to keep them from freezing. The root system of the banana tree is relatively small compared to other palms and very tiny compared to trees.
