In this episode of Get Up and Grow, CHEK’s Hannah Lepine and Gord Nickel, president of Wildwood Outdoor Living Centre, go over how to plant and care for elephant ears.
Elephant ear plants are known for their large green leaves, which kind of resemble an elephant’s ear, hence the name.
Gord tells Hannah it’s best to plant them inside at first as the soil needs to be kept quite warm. Once the threat of frost is gone, these plants are ready to be moved outside.
Gord then goes over how to care for them year-round.
