To help keep your cannas healthy;

  • Water freely in dry spells
  • Apply a liquid fertiliser in midsummer
  • Deadhead to encourage continued flowering
  • Little pruning or training is needed. Just stake clumps in exposed positions
  • When a flower spike has no more buds, prune it down to the next side shoot where a secondary flower spike should develop
  • Under glass, grow in full light but shade from hot sun. If temperatures are maintained above 10°C (50°F) cannas will remain in growth all winter and flower occasionally
