Winter care of exotic plants

AS the temperatures drop it’s time to protect exotic canna lilies, dahlias, agapanthus and bananas. Most need substantial protection, whether they are left in the ground, lifted and moved into a frost-free greenhouse or, if potted, mulched and moved against a sheltered wall or into the greenhouse.
