Today’s video is of Will Giles explaining how to overwinter Cannas, helping you make sure you get your much loved rhizomes through the winter without them turning to brown mush (Will’s words!) . Cannas are a staple exotic plant in any exotic or tropical garden, easy to look after, cheap to buy and fast growing for maximum effect. A very rewarding exotic plant to grow, but care must be taken getting them through the UK’s cold winters. Will keeps almost all his Cannas tucked up nice and warm in his poly tunnel, which never drops below 5 degrees Celsius, even in mid winter. Will Giles explains all in this great video, in another behind the scenes look in the poly tunnels of his amazing Exotic Garden in Norwich. (Filmed April 2010)
