first canna to almost bloom! also a question on buying bulbs
This is the first year I've grown cannas. My aunt gave me a little over 20 bulbs this spring, though they didn't all come up. I currently only have 13 stalks (although I have 2 little babies just coming up now). I planted them on May 27th and am amazed that I have one that's almost ready to bloom (from what she told me I wasn't expecting them until later in August).
I really like them, and am thinking of converting my front garden to a canna lily bed, although I'm going to need a lot more bulbs lol. In your experience, where's the cheapest place to get canna bulbs? Is it better/cheaper to buy in fall or spring? I'd estimate I'd need about 50 more bulbs, and though I really love them, I don't want to go broke lol.
