Growing Habits & Planting Instructions:
Canna Seeds from the 'Tropical Series Mix' require a warm start. It's beneficial to soak the seeds for 24 hours before planting. Sow them indoors, about 0.5 inches deep, in pots filled with a quality potting mix. Once the danger of frost has passed and the seedlings have a few leaves, they can be transplanted outdoors. Choose a sunny spot with rich, well-draining soil. Regular watering is essential, especially during dry spells, but avoid waterlogged conditions. As these plants are heavy feeders, supplementing with a high-potassium fertilizer can boost their growth and flower production.
Let the 'Tropical Series Mix' Canna transport your garden to a tropical paradise. With each bloom, experience a slice of the tropics, right in your backyard. Start your tropical journey today with these mesmerizing seeds.
