How do I plant canna bulbs?

Tips for Planting Canna Bulbs

You should plant your canna bulbs horizontally in the ground with the eyes facing up. There is no chance that you will ever plant your canna bulbs upside down, as they do not have a top or bottom. Cannas should be planted three inches deep and about two feet apart. However, you can plant them closer together if you are trying to achieve a block look. For the block effect, plant the bulbs six inches apart.

Once the bulbs are planted, how long until you will see growth.

Typically within a couple of weeks. You should see green growth on the bulb when you plant it ideally, although this is not always the case.
