hello. i live in arizona where it is very hot and humid right now. i need to dig up all of my canna out of the ground. they will be transplanted in different gardens. should i cut the stems back to just above the ground even though they are actively growing and some are flowering given the hot weather? plus, ppl might not rush to replant once they receive them, so i want to take precautions.
if you have to dig them up now, you can leave them in a container with water. They will still be alive but may have brown leaves. Who ever pickes them up can pot them or plant them and they will show new growth.
