finished flowering, didn't do too great due to my wind tunnel garden in all locations

but i dont remember it seeding before

so what to do once they have dried and ready, sounds like not easy to germinate..?

    Canna seed are fairly easy to grow.

    I sow in early Spring, having sand papered off a bit of the seed covering, and soaking for 24 hours.

    They need good heat to germinate, but will grow quickly.

    I would certainly dig the parent plant up, to over Winter.

  • I had good germination after soaking the seeds for 24 hours. Don't bother with sandpaper.
