Is this a good plan to winterize my Canna??
I have never grown anything that needs to be dug up in the fall. My rule has always been -- once in the ground, it stays there.
However, this spring my husband's co-worker gave him some Canna. I planted them in a huge pot. They are growing great! Very tall & straight. Even had a hummingbird (1st one every)visiting them this summer.
My plan was to just bring the whole pot in for the winter, store it in the basement, then drag it out next spring. Does this sound like a good plan?
Also, about 5 weeks ago, my neighbor gave me more Canna tubers (not sure of correct term)that was brought into the flower shop he works at. I gave my mother some, she planted them & they sprouted. What about saving the rest to plant next summer? Think they will be okay? I already gave some to my SIL & will give more to my daughter. Just wondering if I need to warn them that I was wrong & they may not sprout next year.
Thanks for the help.
