Can I dig Canna early?

jneilwixOctober 10, 2006

I have some canna's with red flowers and purple foliage. I think when I bought them, they were listed as australian or austrian, I can't remember now.

Anyway, how bad would it be to dig them early (like now)? I need to move them to a place where they will get more sun and the bed they are in needs to be redone for fall.

We've got daytime temps in the low 70s to low 80s and nights are low 40's to low 50's now here. Still some time from first frost...

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I'd say go for it! But I wouldn't wait much longer cuz they'll need a little time to get settled before they go totally dormant.
