Over wintering Cannas by wrapping them?
Hey, I am new to this site and the forums, so if there is a certain etiquette I should be observing, please let me know what it is..
Anyway, I live in ScotlandÂ god only knows what US zone that would be. However the weather in the winter is windy rather then frosty. We donÂt usually get ground frost more then the odd day and than not very severe (about Â5c).
However I have some Banana palms as well as other palms in the garden, which I know need to be wrapped for the winter months. What I wanted to know is, can I over winter my Cannas by wrapping them like I do the Banana palms and therefore keep the stems? Reason being is that I have the idea that they need to start growing from nothing again in the spring.
Has anyone tried this?
Thank you Jochen
