Waking up bananas

Hi all this is clearly premature but when should I start to wake up my abysinnian bananas ?

I'm having to have an operation on my shoulder and heavy gardening will be a no go for quite a while so trying to plan stuff for my wife. 

We do work as a team but she will never shift them as they weigh a ton was hoping to shift them to the greenhouse at earliest opportunity

    Mine are in the polytunnel and haven't properly gone to sleep this winter.

    Mine like yours are in my shed with my Canna's are all wrapped up for the hard frost/snow etc, which as yet we've had none.

    Dare I take em out yet as this winter has been so mild apart being so wet.

    Our canna is in the dark garage ... not quite asleep ... think it’s going to need a bigger pot this year ...

    Start of April is when I normally let my Musa Basjoo brave the elements again, but they are a little more hardy so perhaps May if you want to be on the cautious side. Never had any loss / damage in April though
