it helps to know your climate.I have a dwarf,but have not removed any pups from it.It has one now.When I dig it for winter.I'll just keep it together then remove it in spring
.My others?I wasn't nice.I shoved a shovel in ground out from root pried under the root& tilted plant so could to root area.I used a mashette.mines sharp,you could proably use a bow saw.I then planted them out and keept them well watered for about a month& we're getting new leaves.I'd say in the hot heat use some mulch or grass clippings& cut off all but one leaf.
so how tall is your dwarf?All I know is my dwarf is a cavendish.I got it as a pup in the fall.Its about 3 ft.I liked it younger when the new leaves had purple variegation.Then my other is little prince.It won't get over 2 ft.It has a pup but this plant is so bushy like you don't notice it at all when look it.its very green though I've heard all bad stuff about this one.My others are just regular hardy basjoo's.I'm removeing my large one from divideing my front bed,but will try to grow it in house over winter.Its got lots of pups comeing up around its base.I've had it 4-5 years somewhere in that range.In spring
I'll decide where to grow it.My brugs grow into it.
The 3 you think died.check them.dig them and make sure is no rot.I thought one was dead once...I tossed it on ground at back of shed.It started sprouting 4 months later.I planted it.Did you do any soil prepping for where your moveing them?I add compost to existing soil& top dress with compost.
