Overwintering Cannas

Posted: 28/10/2014 at 17:53

My cannas are drying out in the greenhouse at the moment upside down.

I will store these in a cardboard box filled with straw under the staging same as my Dahlias.

I'll start them off February/March time depending on weather conditions.

Invasive shrub

There are a few cultivars of the Pink Japanese Anemone.

I'm guessing some are more well behaved than others.

I have a white one called Andrea Atkinson, its perfectly well behaved.

Snow? Never heard of it.

Out of the bulbs I planted up there are some tiny little crocus shoots and a Hyacinth popping through.

I'm not worried, these are tough plants.

Thats usually down to the soil being too wet. Its not always fatal but I wouldnt grow Pansies or Violas in that soil again.

Pull off any affected leaves and it may be ok

I agree with nut. After a couple of years the flower spikes are smaller, but this is great as they dont tend to fall over and rot so quickly.

I store mine somewhere dark and cool in paper bags. Packed with some straw or sawdust is good too

dahlias

Dahlias are fabulous plants. All mine have been flowering since the start of June and show no signs of stopping yet

The dark Leaf single varieties are my favourite, the dark leaves show off the flower colours immensely 

Wallflowers

I bought a big pot of little seedlings from a local garden centre for £3.50.

Could of got 20-25 plants out of it.

Made 15 good ones and potted them up in the greenhouse.

Planted them all out today with nice healthy root systems

I put my clock back 3 months into the middle of Summer, then I wake up
