About 5 maybe 6 years ago a co-worker gave me a 5 gal pail with some canna tubers in it. He didn't give me any instructions on how to plant them only that they needed to be dug up in the fall. I thought, sure...why not. That's no big deal...I can handle that. HA!!!
Here I am after 5th season with 6 laundry baskets, 3 big mesh laundy bags, a couple of grocery bags, and a few large potting containers FILLED with the 'dug up' cannas. Would you believe that I started THIS season with only *3* mesh laundry bags...and I gave HALF of those away in the spring! (You can't see *all* the baskets...they wouldn't fit in the picture!)
Now, all I have to do is clean them up, cut off the roots, and pack them in peat moss. Uh...wait a minute...little voice in back of head whispers "julie forgot she still has *another* bed to dig!" Ughhhhhhhhh.
