The Q&A Archives: Tuberous begonias

Question: I have dug up my begonias that were growing outside. Can you tell me how to prepare and store them for the winter?

Answer: When the stems have fallen off the plant, lift tuber; shake off dirt; dry tuber in the sun for 3 days; store in a cool, dry place, such as a garage. When little pink buds become visible in the spring, plant directly in pots and take outdoors. They'regreat in hanging baskets, or sink the pots into the ground. Next fall, begin the process all over again.
