    Cannes is moving
    In the first month of autumn, I prepare my cannas for the “move” from the garden to the basement.
    I dig up the plants and transplant them into large containers. In two
    Weeks I cut off the leaves and move the plants to the basement. To prevent the rhizomes from drying out, I pour a glass of water into containers once every two weeks. Cannas will not begin to grow until April.


    Cannes for landing

    I plant my favorite cannes in open ground, usually in late May or early June, after the threat of return frosts has disappeared. For flowers, I choose a place protected from the wind and well lit by the sun. I dig holes about 60 cm deep, put manure on the bottom with a layer of 20 cm, and on top - the same layer of earth. The distance between the holes is at least 50 cm. Sprouted roots are planted to a depth of 10-15 cm, unsprouted - 5-7 cm.

    A neighbor in the fall gave a large canna rhizome in a pot. Kept it in the basement. When to deliver? And what to do with it next?

    • OOO "Sad"

      “I'm taking cannes out of the cellar in February. I leave for a couple of days in a warm, bright room (+ 16-18 degrees). Then I take out the rhizomes and clean them from the ground. I remove old, dry ones. I disassemble the large ones into divisions according to the number of freely separating processes. Each should have one strong bud of renewal, or two or three not very well developed.

      If the rhizome is poorly preserved, I divide it into large parts, and only when young shoots appear - into smaller ones. I sprinkle the slices with crushed charcoal, burn them with brilliant green and dry them.
      I put the delenki in a box filled with soil mixture from earth, peat, sand or sawdust (2: 1: 0,5) and water it abundantly with a 0,05% solution of potassium permanganate. I put the box in a warm (+25 degrees) place. After 7-10 days, buds develop and shoots appear. Then I transplant the shoots with shoots into pots with a substrate of sand, soddy soil and peat (0,5: 1: 1).

    I read a selection of letters about cannes. Unfortunately, nothing is said there that cannes grow well on water. Yes, these flowers used to grow only in flower beds, and then we read that they can decorate reservoirs, and sent them from land to some water.

    What can I say? They feel great in the water if the depth is small - 10-20 cm. As soon as the heat is finally established in late spring, we put pots with cannes in our country pool. They bloom until late autumn, only with the onset of frost we take them out and take them to the greenhouse, and then put them in containers with water. And they bloom beautifully all winter and even form new shoots. True, we help them with this - we maintain the temperature at least 15 degrees and artificial lighting.
    If you don’t have a greenhouse, wipe the rhizomes out of the water, dry them a little and bury them in peat or sand.
    Carry out the division of plants in the spring, in April. Consider one subtlety: cannes love fertile soil. To prevent it from eroding, make a clay “castle” on the surface of the soil in a pot. And if you have a fish in your pond, sprinkle pebbles on top of the clay.

    One more. When placing cannes in places accessible to the wind, secure the pots in some way so that the wind does not knock them over.
    And the last tip. The best combination, as we have seen, cannes and nymphs - the beauty is such that at least every day you see, but takes for the soul.

  5. Eduard Shamshurin.

    I have a plot in a wasteland, the earth here is clay, and when it is very hot, it becomes like a stone. In the first year, almost all the flowers withered, but the cannes survived! Yes, so tall, with bright scarlet flowers! I have been growing these flowers for the fifth year on the site and noticed that they, like cotton, love the hot sun and water, they literally drink their roots. Last year I tried using them as an aquatic plant.

    And it worked! Try it too. In late spring or early summer, when there will definitely be no more frosts, install cannes in pots in the supply directly in the open air. They can be placed in a shallow country pond or groove. So that the earth in the pot does not erode, put a small layer of clay on top, and you can additionally pour a layer of pebbles or gravel. You can install containers with cannes in any part of the reservoir, if it is a deep place, then you need to prepare a stand for the flower. The water should just cover the pot. And so that the flower does not accidentally tip over in strong winds, secure the pot properly - for example, it can be propped up with large stones.

  6. Larisa KIRILLOVA, florist

    Cannes are planted in the ground with the onset of heat, in May-June, when the soil warms up. But beforehand (in March-April), it would be good to grow a flower at home so that the rhizome sprouts. Planting depth in open ground is 25 - 30 cm. Put humus mixed with sand or excavated soil at the bottom of the hole. Plant sprouted rhizomes in the hole and water abundantly at first. Cannes are dug after the first autumn frosts (September-October). They can, without pruning, be transplanted into a pot and transferred home. Cannes will bloom until December. But usually, cannes are stored in the cellar in winter or wrapped in newspaper in the refrigerator, storage temperature + 6-8 ° C. Cut the stem to a height of 20-25 cm beforehand. Rhizomes with an earthy clod and a stem cut to a height of 10-15 cm can also be transplanted pots and store in bright rooms at a temperature of 12-15 ° C, watering moderately. Throughout the winter, the buds will grow slowly and mature well.

    Garden cannes are divided into two groups. Varieties with green leaves: Golden Bird (yellow flowers with white edging), Liberation (golden-orange flowers). Moonlight (flowers are white with a yellowish tinge). Varieties with brown leaves: Fire Wizard (dark red flowers), King Humbert (red flowers).

  7. L.I. TROSHKINA Chelyabinsk.

    I have lived all my life in Chelyabinsk and I remember how many years ago these bright red flowers with leaves in the form of an ellipse adorned all the central flower beds of the city. And then for some reason they forgot about them.
    Yes, they forgot so much that now cannes are perceived as some kind of exotics. But the plant is unpretentious, it is a pity, however, that it does not hibernate in the open field, in the fall, like dahlias, cannes rhizomes need to be dug up. This flower prefers fertile and loose soil, but there is one secret - it has such strong and strong roots that they can break even heavy loamy soils.
    Therefore, I go for such a trick - I plant cannes where it is necessary to improve the land with their roots, they work like a good chopper. After a year or two, the earth in this place becomes loose and light, and I transplant the cannes to the next clay area - let them work there! Cannes are not afraid of the sun, but they need feeding and watering, cannes are large water lilies. Fertilizing with organic fertilizers (rotted manure or compost) will respond with abundant flowering.

    Having dug up the rhizomes of the cannes in the fall, I plant several pieces in flower pots and put them on the windowsill - so they delight me with the greenery of their aboveground part all winter. And they bloom in mid-March.

  9. Svetlana KONONOVICH

    I grow my favorite cannes in nutritious soil - a mixture of peat, black soil and forest land (2: 3: 2). The plant prefers open, sunny areas, regular but moderate watering. I feed the bushes during the growing season with complex fertilizers for garden tuberous plants (but instructions).
    In August, the rhizomes of overgrown cannes can be divided for further reproduction. At the same time, I make sure that on each division there is one powerful kidney or 2-3 small ones. I dry the rhizome fragments, sprinkle the cuts with crushed coal and leave them for storage in the basement.

    In early spring, I transfer the planting material to a warm room, periodically spray it with water at room temperature. To make the canna germinate faster, I sprinkle the rhizomes with a layer of sand. At the beginning of April, I plant it in cut off 5-liter bottles (you can go to the greenhouse, thoroughly sprinkling the rhizomes with earth). When the threat of frost has passed, I move the cannes outside in large containers. Already in June, they begin to grow buds. And how they bloom - do not take your eyes off!

    Cannes flowers - growing, storage, care and varieties

    • OOO "Sad"

      In order for the cannes to retain their decorative effect in the garden longer and to build up the underground part better, it is advisable to spud their "legs" with the onset of autumn cold weather. Root tubers are dug out after the first freeze with a clod of earth, only shaking off its excess a little (in September-October - for the middle lane, in November - in the southern regions). So they winter better. The stems are cut to a height of 12-15 cm. The planting material is slightly dried and, covered with dry sand or sawdust with a layer of 15-20 cm, is stored at a temperature of + 4-5 degrees.

    The homeland of this beauty is the tropics and subtropics of America, Asia, Africa, where she grows along the banks of rivers and streams. But in Russia, she also took root and delights florists with her fiery red flower petals, wide leaves and a powerful stem, and it can be grown not only in the southern region, but also in the temperate latitudes of Russia.

    Before planting it is better to germinate in a container with earth on the windowsill, but away from the heating battery. When a sprout appears, and the weather is warm outside, you can plant a canna in a flower garden or pot, if you decide to create a mobile flower garden and move it to the place you need. This is especially true in the middle lane. After all, with return frosts, the pot can easily be removed to a room or a greenhouse, as well as put in a place where there is no wind.
    In the southern region, it can immediately be planted in a permanent place in a flower bed. If planted in a container, then you need to water more often, pick up a semi-shady place, otherwise the roots will dry out and the plant will be uncomfortable.
    In the south (in the subtropical zone), the canna can be left to hibernate in the ground, slightly covering the roots with dry leaves, humus.
    But to leave the canna in the ground in the middle lane means to doom it to death. Therefore, when the plants have bloomed, the inflorescences should be cut, and in the middle of September - October, the stem should also be cut, leaving a stump 5 cm high.
    If you grow a canna in the middle lane, then in the winter after the first frost it should be dug up, shaken the ground and placed in a box or other container, sprinkled with peat, humus and sent to the cellar or to the cool pantry.
    Regularly need to inspect the roots, moisten a little so that they do not dry out. In the spring, again put the roots in a pallet on a light windowsill for germination, then plant them in the country. And you will again admire this noble flower, the main decoration of your garden.

    Please advise whether it is possible to store cannes tubers in the refrigerator.

    • OOO "Sad"

      Usually suitable for this compartment for vegetables and fruits. Tubers are dug, washed from the ground, carried out disinfection treatment with a weak solution of potassium permanganate.

      I want to note that before putting them in storage they need to be allowed to dry for a day in a warm room, after which they are wrapped in a damp newspaper, put in a plastic container and sent to the refrigerator, from where it is removed only with the arrival of spring.

    I have a lot of cannes. During flowering, the family is jokingly called the site "Cannes festival". Sprouted plants from the middle of May planted in the open ground in the warmed soil.

    Drainage is mandatory. Landing pits are filled with a mixture of leaf land, sand, peat and humus (all in roughly equal parts). The depth of planting tubers - up to 9 cm, the distance between rows and plants - according to 50, see.

    After digging up the rhizomes of the canvas, I replicate several pieces in pots and take them home. All winter, the green oasis on my windowsill pleases the eye, and in mid-March, the cannes blossom.

    Canna hybrid (Canna x hybrida)

    Description. Under this name "go" all varieties of complex hybrid origin. Now we know about 1000 varieties, which differ in height, color of leaves and flowers, as well as flowering time. Some of them are conventionally divided into 2 groups: Crozie - with gray leaves, Humboldt - varieties with orange flowers and red-brown leaves. All cannes are extremely beautiful, fairly large flowers that bloom from mid-summer to autumn; and if you plant plants in February in a closed ground for growth, then flowering will begin even earlier.
    Agrotechnics. Cannes - the plants are thermophilic, so they need well-lit, protected from the wind areas. To make the plants bloom even more effectively, they make a special manure bed during the planting - in a pit about 70 cm deep, lay 20 cm of manure and top it with soil. Lashing, the manure will give off heat and warm up the landing site. Cannes does not hibernate in the middle of Russia and requires an annual excavation.

    Reproduction. It reproduces by the division of rhizomes. Using. Kanna - exotic flower garden decoration. Effectively looks great groups. Low-grown varieties can be used to decorate containers.

    Spectacular cannes always place in the center of the flowerbed. The rhizomes in early spring are planted in pots with nutritious soil. I plant so that they are densely placed in a pot. Plants watered and put in the brightest place. The temperature should not be higher than 1 b °. At a higher temperature, plants can be affected by a spider mite, and if it falls below 10 °, there is a risk of fungus.

    When the threat of frost passes, I plant the cannes in open ground - somewhere in early May. I make a hole with a depth of 40-50 cm, put rotten manure into it, then a mixture of earth and humus, carefully transfer the plants into the planting hole, fill it with soil and water it abundantly.
    Planted plants at a distance of 60 cm from each other, deepening the roots at 15-20 cm, at such a depth they will not dry up. Cannes needs a humus-rich soil and a sunny place or a light penumbra. For abundant flowering I feed the flowers with organic or mineral fertilizers every 2 weeks. With the first frost I cut off the plants, and then dig up and dry the rhizomes. I keep in the cellar until spring.

    Secrets of growing cannes

    I grow cannes on my site for 7 years.

    At the end of March and the beginning of April I take out the rhizomes of the canna from the cellar, divide them if necessary, pop it with ashes and plant it in pots. Until the appearance of leaves water moderately.

    In the open ground, I plant after the disappearance of the threat of recurrent frosts (late May-early June). Cannes prefer a sunny place with protection from the wind, but I also grow well in the penumbra. If necessary I tie them to pegs.
    At the bottom of a deep hole in a layer of 10-15 cm lay spreading manure, fall asleep a layer of earth in 20 cm and lay drainage. I lower the rhizome in a hole and fall asleep with soil from soil of sod, humus and large river sand. With such a landing on the "warm pillow" there is no need to fertilize the flower.

    In the absence of rain, I water the canals under the root once every 3-5 days.

    So that the canvas blossomed in the beginning of summer, I begin to "wake up" it in February. First, the rhizomes are divided into 3-5 parts, depending on the number of kidneys. To make the eyes grow, the cut rhizomes are laid in boxes and stored in a warm room, regularly sprinkling water at room temperature. At the end of March I take them to a warm greenhouse, where I lay tightly to each other and sprinkle with earth. On a permanent place in the ground planted in late May.

    She used to live in Kazakhstan. Cannes cultivated the year 3. For the winter, the tubers were separated and some were planted in large outdoor pots in the house, and some kept in the basement. They blossomed, and summer in the country, and in the winter in the room. 3 years ago we moved to Omsk. I bought on the market one onion with a small burgundy sprout. In appearance there was a cannabe and a woman that sold confirmed. I grew it on the site. It seems that canna, a plant of about 150, has grown, but there were no flowers. Tubers hibernated in the house, but did not bloom. In autumn, a part of the planted in the house, and a part of it was lowered into the basement. Can not understand. why it does not blossom. Maybe it's such a variety? Who knows?

    Wintering cannes
    Despite its tropical origin, cannes are rather unpretentious. Their only drawback when growing in the middle belt-the plant can not overwinter in the ground, so for the winter they must be excavated.
    First of all, I cut off the stems of the canna, leaving only about 20 cm from the root, and then dig it out. Usually, I do this after the first frosts (in the middle zone - in late September - early October). I drizzle rhizomes in the open air, but under a canopy. It is not necessary to clean them from the ground, and even more so to wash. Rhizomes should dry out together with an earthen lump - in this form they will be perfectly preserved until the spring. I store canes in a cellar in wooden boxes, pouring them with a mixture of peat, sawdust and sand (1: 1: 1), at a temperature of + 8 deg. It is important that the moisture content of the substrate does not exceed 60%.
    Once a month I check the condition of the rhizomes: if they are dry, I moisten the substrate a little, if wet or even rotten, I cut off the damaged areas to a healthy tissue, and sprinkled with crushed coal or ground cinnamon.

    Cultivation of cannes
    I adore these beautiful flowers. I will say more, I collect them in my flower garden.
    There are tall, with me growing, there are dwarfish. By the way, dwarf canes grow in me all year round. I excavate them in the fall, transplant them into drawers and put them on the windowsills. The rest I go down for the winter in a dry cool pit.
    Seeds do not like to breed cannes. Tried, but new plants or another form acquire, or change the color of flowers. In general, I multiply canals by dividing rhizomes.
    I take the rhizomes out of the pit in early May. I divide by the processes. I am very happy when I find fresh buds on the processes. This means that the cannes have perfectly overwintered. The places of the cuts of the appendages are sprinkled for disinfection and strengthening by sifted ash. I spread out the rhizomes of flowers in a greenhouse on a shelf, sprayed with water and covered with nonwoven material for heat. In a week I put the roots of flowers in boxes with sand for germination. When the first leaves appear on the shoots of 3-4, I plant flowers in the ground at a distance of 50 cm from each other. The flower garden is always broken in a well-lit place, because these beautiful plants love the sun very much.

      If possible, share the tuber. I saw flowers for the first time this summer in Sol-Iletsk. Loved it. I want to try propagating by seeds ...

    This culture has been mastered by us for a long time. Undecidedly forgotten, but now interest in it again revives. Nothing complicated in the cultivation of cannon.
    Cannes in our winters is not much harder than dahlias. After the first frost, cut off the above-ground part, leaving 15 cm of petioles of leaves, slightly (!) Brush the rhizome from the ground, lightly dry the root lump and cover it with sawdust in a large plastic pot. So you put it in the cellar, on the top shelf.
    The main subtlety is not to dry and rot in winter the rhizomes. Remains of soil on them should be evenly moist, so that when you press a paper napkin to them, there were no wet spots on it, but the soil should not feel dry and touch to the touch.
    And when in the spring the soil warms up to + 8 ° С, plant them on the street (that is, simultaneously with the planting of potatoes). So wintering is not difficult, but the soil for them and care is a separate story.

  22. Irina

    When I see cannes on sale, I always take my breath away: I really want to, but is it worth it to bother, because they are hard to winter? And they’re not cheap ... Although I have a cellar in which dahlias survive the winter well.



  24. At the present time about 1 meter. Will they succeed in fading and gaining strength for the forthcoming bloom in the summer?
