I have Dahlias, Peacock Orchids, and Cannas - planted in large containers - that are doing OK but not great even with considerable watering. Since I live in New Jersey (zone6-7) and we are in drought conditions, I wanted to know if there was any way to get these bulbs to the dormant stage they will go into during the winter now at the end of August? Thanks for any suggestions to keep these bulbs alive for next year.

and even top dress them with compost periodically. These plants are gorgeous when healthy, and as the weather moderates I would expect them to perk up remarkably. I hope this helps. and even top dress them with compost periodically. These plants are gorgeous when healthy, and as the weather moderates I would expect them to perk up remarkably.
