Should I divide young plants?

petpalikali(WI-Z4)May 16, 2008

So, I got these Canna tubers last Fall. I potted them up in the house to start them, and want to put them in the garden now. This is my first time growing Cannas, and I didn't know about dividing the tubers or eyes at the time. Some of the tubers have three plants growing on them. Should I divide these when I transplant them?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

You can just transplant the entire pot (sans pot of course) into your flower bed. No need to divide until you lift them in the fall. They will do just fine.
