    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.

    Don't step on snails, don't climb in trees
    Love cliff richard but please don't tease
  • I had good germination after soaking the seeds for 24 hours. Don't bother with sandpaper.

  • ok thanks guys, ill bag em up when ready and look into in the spring
