Storing Cannas
Thu, 18 Dec 2003 14:43:47 PST
Hi All:
I was speaking  with a local gentleman, recently transplanted from Great 
Britain, who has had difficulty with rot while storing his Cannas.  I have little 
experience with Cannas but have not had a similar problem.  The only 
differences that we could determine was that I store mine dry at just above freezing, 
versus his at 50F, and do not clean them but just pop them out of the ground, 
let them cure, shake off the excess soil and pot them into dry peatmoss while 
his is a more thorough cleaning. What advice may I offer this gentleman when we 
next meet?
