this year i bought some begonia tubers lovely flowers off them i kow you have to cut the stalks off the tuber when they have finished flowering but how do i store the tubers do i put them in a paper bag or do i put them in a pot with moist soil first time i have bought tubers

On plant i dont know which type of begonias they i bought them on line



I leave them till the first light frosts cut them back. Remove any remaining stalks, lift and remove all the soil. You store them dry in a well ventilated frost free place. I do the above then store them all in a big pot without any soil - spraying with water in early spring to stop them drying out too much.

I stand mine on top of dry soil or sand in a frost free place away from mice.
