Tidy up canna lilies

Gardening Australia - - YOUR PLANNER -

Af­ter months of pro­duc­ing gor­geous flow­ers, canna lilies start to die back in late au­tumn, so it’s a good time to cut them back and set them up for next sea­son’s per­for­mance. Cut spent stems down to ground level, but leave any young shoots, as they will be the first to flower next sea­son. Lift and di­vide the clumps if they are get­ting crowded. Mulch around plants with com­post and straw, and fer­tilise in late win­ter, just be­fore they are ready to start grow­ing again.
