These are the cannas I dug out of my 1/2 whiskey barrels last week. I used the hose to remove the soil.
Then I put them in the garage for a week to thoroughly dry. If the weather had cooperated, I would have just let them sunbathe for a day.
They were nice and dry today, so I put them in a labeled grocery bag.
This is the first year I have gone to so much trouble to store cannas. I had to dig them out because the whiskey barrels are too heavy to store in my crawl space. It will be interesting if they survive.
It feels good to be done putting all the canna, callas, and dahlias to bed.
