What to do with Canna bulbs?

Thanks. I'll pot them up and keep them in the green house then. :-)

A neighbour of mine has been thinning out her Cannas in her front garden. I've always been envious of them as they always look so healthy despite the, being behind a wall in a north facing garden. Anyway she's given me a load of bulbs for free  along with a couple of plants. Can anyone tell me if I should plant them in the ground now or wait until the frosts have passed.

Well it's not far from a bird feeder but G. Abassinica seems to have spear shaped leaves?

Hi folks,


Any ID on this interloper please? It seems to have shot up in the last few days.

That's a bargain! Mine was £11.99. I'll have to keep my eye out for any reduced price items in the next few weeks.

Wow that's lovely! I'm trying to get a tropical theme going with the stanard plants like fatsia and cannas, etc. The banana will hopefully finish off the effect as long as I can keep it alive over the winter lol.

Thanks, I think I'll bring it in now as it's a bit of a chilly night here brrr!

Thanks fidget, I'll do that. Will it be happier in my conservatory (which is more like a living room with big patio doors and kept at room temperature) or my unheated greenhouse?

Hi folks,


I've just bought a Musa Basjoo Japanese Banana. I know it's probably not the right time of year to be getting one but it was a bit of an impulse buy. I've read it's hardy down to -10c but presumably that's a mature/established one. I'm on the south coast and it doesn't often get that cold in winter. Does anyone know whether I can plant it out now or would it be better to pot it up into a terracotta pot for now.


Cheers


James
