Overwintering Cannas

This question was asked by
Anne B – 

I have cut the foliage off my potted cannas and they are now in my insulated green house. Do they need watering throughout the winter or should they be kept dry

Hi Anne

Cannas need lifting and drying off over winter. Cut back foliage and carefully lift the rhizomes out of the soil.
Allow the rhizomes to dry off naturally and then clean away any soil.
Make sure the tubers are completely dry before storing them into open trays or boxes.
Store in a dark place that is frost free.
Replant them in the spring and water regularly.
