I've been asked to post pictures of how i stored canna roots, so I took a few pics and this is how i did it..
-First i start with a rubbermaid bin (any size will work depending on how big or small your collection is)
-then i get plastic storage baskets from the dollar store enough so every type i have has its own basket, sometimes i have more
then one basket if the roots really multiplied that year..
-then i write on the side of the basket what is in there so i will always know and they dont get mixed up..
-After all my roots are in the plastic basket, i place them stacked in the rubbermaid bin first placing two empty baskets upside down just incase theres water built up in the bottom.. Wouldn't want the roots to rot from sitting in water..
-i then just stick the whole rubbermaid bin with the lid on in my basement, i do check them once a month just to make sure they are not drying out.
Thats all till spring when its time to take them out and plant again...
