I don't tie them up tight. I'm in Zone 7 NC. I have done them this way
for years and hardly ever loose any to rot. Of course many can stay in
the ground here in the winter also. It stays no lower than 40 under my
house. I also do bananas this way but no bag just toss them under there.

Do you punch some air holes in the bags?  What is your climate? Rot
would set in here in my AL zone 8 because of our irratic temp. swings
during the winter yet I have to dig because of voles. ..b.f.n...deb
