Nice Gertie.  Yet another plant I am impelled to get 

Extending a bed from 1m to ...more

Address the hardpan Tetley to create something really good there. You will always regret the "cheat" I think.   I would regard this as a winter job rather than wait until spring.  Then you can plant whatever you want without compromise.

no I would just keep it dry but water lightly early in spring to try for an early start

No that's not Star Child Gertie.  

If you emailed the Dahlia Collection with your picture I'm sure they can ID it

Yes ideal

Yes take it indoors now. Water it but then keep it dry AllotmentMad

i grow quite a few cannas.....they are hardy here outside but I still keep some under cover.

a few days ago I severed an offshoot from a young canna and potted it up,,watered it and now kept in gh until spring.  It should grow quickly then as yours .
