Hi I have trailing begonias grown from plugs. They then have tubers when they finish. Can I save the tubers and store over winter for use next year? If so how do I store them



I dig mine up, cut stems off about 1" from tuber - Let them dry out - Then I wrap in paper place them in a cardboard box then into a cool dry place (Frost Free) I put mine in the garage - until I start them up again next year.

Or you can store them in dry compost or sand. Keep mice away! Start them into growth early as they can take ages to get going.
