Tuberous begonias, fall care
I know from skimming your posts that you guys on this forum are used to more exotic begonias, but maybe you can point me to a FAQ somewhere.
I have Non-stop Begonias in containers outside. Do I lift them after a killing frost? How do I store them? They were very slow to sprout and bloom. I think when I planted them it was too cold outside (May?). I think it was more than a month until I got sprouts, so now they have not been blooming for that long. I assume this kind needs a dormant period, so there would be no advantage to bring the pots inside for winter? I don't have room for all, would have to pick and choose.
Assuming the tubers make it through the winter, how to I start them next spring to get faster bloom? I have very little indoor window space. Can they be started in something small (like a peat pot) then tranplanted into the outdoor containers?
Thanks for your help!
