Forum home The potting shed


Hello fellow gardeners, can anyone tell me the best way to overwinter cannas?  Should I put them in the greenhouse now (in full leaf because we haven’t yet had a hard frost) or wait for a frost to kill off all the top growth and then put them in? I will need to repot them in the spring because they’ve outgrown the pots they are in now. Thanks in advance.

    I have put mine in the greenhouse in full leaf. I cut the leaves off when they die down naturally. I keep them fairly dry over winter in their pots, then repot in Spring and feed them then.
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
  • Thanks a lot Fidget, that’s a great help.
