Sillybug, keeping them dry is as important as protecting from cold.  Cardboard boxes, straw, newspaper plus fleece should do the trick

No MrsG.....hostafan is not a bad influence.......   I agree with him so get those cannas in asap.   Sooner they're in the better they will be.  Here they are growing with lots of vigour to flower before July

been lovely here too.  Gaura duly planted.  What better in a sun baked border in mid summer?  Better than annuals and will survive the winter to flower next year and give me cuttings for even more plants 

too many visitors today.....hmm!  That sounds ungrateful but lookee here...not one brought me a donut.  wot can I say????

One plant is lush....tall,,bushy and about to flower. The others are less than half the height, less lush but flowering.  My feeling though is that these weaker plants are struggling for some reason.  I have mulched and fed them more gemerously so will monitor how they perform

Hello Pam

remove flowered spike as soon as it starts to go over and more flowers will form.
