More Cannas


As it was frosty first thing yesterday I decided that I would re-pot my cannas so that I would get flowers earlier in the season. I had four large pots and the plants had not been disturbed for two years. A nice little job I thought whilst the ground thawed. Wrong. Firstly I had to enlist John’s help to get them out of the pots as they had grown so well. I had triple the number of plants I expected and it took me until lunchtime to pot them up. They are now ensconced in the dining room having been given the usual words of encouragement – “grow you -—— grow!!”.

Must dash weeds are calling.

Cannas do return a great dividend in new tubers don't they.
