While cleaning up some of the beds and planters this afternoon (can all the leaves please just fall now?) I found this when pulling up one of the lightly frostbitten Begonia Bonfire plants from a container.
This was a medium sized plant from a cutting in midsummer, so the tuber’s not huge. I didn’t expect to save more than the one plant I’d brought into the house before frost, so this was a surprise. I’ve never kept tuberous begonias before so I thought I’d post a pic and ask for help. I’m guessing trim the stems, cool, dry place, but suggestions are definitely welcome.
These guys were absolute showstoppers all through Summer and into Fall! If I can save a dozen plants as tubers rather than start with cuttings in spring…all the better!
