Tuberous begonia winter storage: best way ?
I brought mine inside as usual, and they are starting the process of going into dormancy. I usually then dig up the tubers and store in paper lunch bags, inside a plastic shoe box. This goes into a concrete floored closet in my basement, which is cooler than the rest of the basement.
Some of the ones I stored last year did not make it through the winter, though. They looked dried out with hollow spots when I brought them back upstairs. I am questioning whether it might be better to store them in the dirt, in their pots in the basement.
I anyone has tried this, or both, let me know how it worked out for you. Thanks!
