Forgot to say thank you too to Alan for replying.
Thank you for your help, Ladybird.
Sorry, ladybird you are right; it is a calla lily. We grew canna lilies in our French garden so had a senior moment!!
I bought a canna lily from my local garden centre. It was with the house plants, but has no instructions how to look after it. Please could you give me some advice about looking after it?

Thank you for your advice. Will do what you suggest.
I bought a pink geranium, the perennial sort, in a charity plant sale today, but it's very leggy and the flowers are fading. Can I cut it back to half its size now? Will it flower again this year?
Thank you all for your advice.
Will look for geranium Roxanne, WillDB. Great idea. Thanks.
Will be careful planting, punkdoc.
I have a magnolia bush in my front garden and it's under planted with crocuses in spring. Now that they have died off and I've cleared away the dead foliage, can I plant some summer bedding plants to give the bed some colour or would that be bad for the crocuses?
There are signs of life, so will start them off in pots and transfer to the garden later on. Will let you know how they get on.
I got a bit carried away at my local garden centre yesterday and bought a lot of reduced bulbs!
Can you plant peonies in a pot? I bought a couple of them which are supposed to be highly scented, so would like to put them on the patio.
