Re: The canna's, they're all dead!

Well had a look round my canna bed at the week end and all mine were rotted :( so have now planted the new ones which I have grown from seed, but if they don't put on a good show this year, then I won't bother with them again.

Re: How are your Musa Basjoo's doing?

My smaller pups from last year are just starting to put out a new leaf each but not growing very tall yet. The larger one from last year, for some reason still has not moved one inch. :(
