Mr List I have seen far far worse clips on youtube, don't worry it gave me a chuckle. Although most of us don't usually broadcast our bedroom clips, you looked to be entertaining yourself, does this all happen while your partner is out? :lol: :lol:

@Kris
that canna has really impressed me this year and it is pegged as staying oudoors.
you got anytips on getting cannas through winters outside
Yes, mulch them really well and pray for a mild winter. I have got them through winters outside before so you should be able to. Nothing came back after last year though. Those with Canna virus will not come back.

If I use loads of straw on cannas are they best then covered with waterproof membrane too?

I've not done that before and I doubt people with big garden/estates do who have 100s of cannas in the ground. Slugs can be a problem though and eat through the dormant cannas in winter.

I once left canna rhizomes out on the path exposed for the entire winter. They survived through the frost and snow! Therefore, I wonder if good drainage (or simply keeping them dry) is the key.

this is midnight one of my neighbours cats.
she is a very poorly little cat.at six months she developed breathing and heart problems and nearly died.
after she was a year old she became ill again and was rushed for an emergency operation to have her bowels and kidney removed.
she is the sweetest little thing and just loves me, following me everywhere.

Good luck I hope you can get it through winter. I've always failed with this one.
