I bought a cana from wikinsons, reduced to 50p. ive potted it up and its starting to grow. should i bring it into the greenhouse over winter? I like the idea of gettting a good plant so cheaply!


  • Thank you, so do I not water it at all over winter?
  • Il do that, thank you for your advice!

    agree with Verdun, as usual. Keep it dry . In spring it will start to grow, that's the cue to start watering again. Gently at first until it gets going.

    You 'canna' be too careful with you see what I did there? image

    As the other say - it's a combination of cold and wet that does for them. I forgot about one completely one year - in a conservatory - and it was never watered. It sprang back to life and romped away once the weather improved and I started watering again. Potted on with plenty of nutrition, it doubled in size that year.


    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

  • i think was potted to deep 9was boxed up for winter) maybe was going to spring into life but later
