Pitiful Texas gardener needs just a little friendly help.
This is my first winter to have to deal with perennials. New house.
I have cannas and was wondering if it was necessary for me to pull up the rhizomes. I definitely want to divide them to make more plants next spring. They have lots of new growth on each plant. So, would it be beneficial to wait until when??? to pull up the rhizome, divide, and store for replanting in the spring, or divide the new growth from the rhizome now if possible and replant?
I also have daylillies I want to divide. Same thing? Pull the rhizomes up and divide for storing?
I have a pink oleander and 3 hardy banana shoots I planted two months ago. I do want these to survive and was wondering what I should do as far as mulching. I'm not very smart when it comes to gardening. But I sure am trying! Thank You for all your wonderful ideas and help.
