should i take my begonias out of there hanging baskets now and strip them back and store them for next year. they are still in flower.



I would leave them until a frost gets them. The tubers in the soil won't be harmed by one frost. When the tops have gone black from frost then cut down the tops and dig out the tubers. Let them dry off a bit and then store them in fairly dry compost until spring, in a frost free place. Check them regularly over winter to check that they aren't going rotten.
