Always loved to potter in the garden but only really in the last couple of years, have I embraced it by redesigning our space and growing from seed

Canna 'Phasion' syn. Canna 'Durban', Canna 'Tropicanna',

Dug up all my Canna yesterday to over winter in pots in the greenhouse. Couldn’t bear to cut these 2 back yet as still wanting to bloom! Another week or so then they can join the rest 😄

Snap! I did exactly the same. Mine have always been in a pot. Multiplied over the years and this year I had 4. So time to plant directly into the border

Dug up these 2 beauties today. All divided so. Now have 7 if they all make it! I'll be giving some away as I want a few other varieties to add for next year. So anyone fancy swaps next year let me know. Mine are now tucked up in the greenhouse with the baby nanas! 😁

Has anyone had any success in growing #canna from seed? Thinking of giving it a go 🤔

My grandpa had in his home. But it will take time. If you'd a big space then it is fine for this Lily.

I've got 2 of these in my tropical bed but as they got great seed heads, I thought I'd give it a go. I know they'll take time. Managed to grow Iris from seed so worth a shot I guess 😁 @jyotu

I'm gonna to plant red and yellow ones when my home's construction finished. This year i planted a stargazer. @hayleyaj

comment
hayleyaj

Lovely. Be careful with Stargazer if you have pets, as its pollen is very toxic to dogs and cats. I have an orange and a red Tropicana Canna, I love the variegated leaves on them too. Very Banana like 😁 @jyotu

I grew some cannas from seed this year, you need to scratch the seeds to reveal the white part underneath then soak them for a couple of days, they took about two weeks to come up.

Thanks Gary. Yes I researched it so that's what I'll do. How big are your seedlings now? 🤔 @Garyg

All mine are grown from rhizomes, but as I now have seeds, I thought I'd give it a go as I love seeing what I can produce from scratch. I agree, Stargazer scent is intoxicating and gorgeous 😁 @jyotu
