Winterizing?

sudhiraNovember 5, 2011

This is my first Winter with rhizomatous begonias...I have them in an unheated greenhouse. The temperature dropped to 45 in there the other night so I fashioned and area surrounded with saran wrap. I placed clean Christmas lights underneath the stand to hopefully warm it up a bit at night. Should I just wait and see if they can survive in there, or should I just bring them all inside the house???

Thanks

You can try seeing how they will do and report back in the spring. If you value them I would bring them in though.
