Begonia Seeds

Does anyone know how to harvest begonia seeds? I have some begonias that are the dark ones with red blooms. I just love them. Believe it or not, this is the 3rd year they have came back for me!! I have them planted in a little spot right by my house which seems to keep them sheltered enough for them to come back.

RE: Begonia Seeds

Hi mspriggs,

I've never grown or saved seeds from begonia, but found some info at the link below. It describes the parts of the bloom and near the bottom it tells how to harvest them.



Here is a link that might be useful: Setting and Saving Seed for Species Conservation
