How to plant Canna Tubers?
I am starting my Canna Tubers, I am going to put them in pots, then in the greenhouse during the day, and haul all 50 or so back into the house at night until temps get a little warmer.
A daunting task, but for the love of Canna, I am willing to do it.
But, I have a couple questions about the tubers I have brought out of storage.
I notice that some of them are nice and fat, and have a couple areas that are eying up? (They look a little like nipples ;-)
So, these tubers will have two shoots right off the start I am guessing. Are canna's like Dahlias and other plants where you don't want them to start with too many shoots and you should cut off the extra ones? Or should I just let it grow?
Some of them though, have many eyes, or new growth buds. They look like toes in a way. The tuber is not that large, but I can count 4-6 different toes, all about the same size (maybe the size of pingpong ball) stuck together. What should I do with these? I worry if I divide them the plants will take a long time to establish themselves... But they are going to form shoots like crazy!
Any advice appreciated!
