Tuberous begonias can be grown with fair to good results. They should be planted in spring. Place the tubers 1"-2" deep and 12"-15" apart. They do best in a partial shade location.

Fertilize every 2-3 weeks from the time foliage appears until it withers away. Tubers should be dug up in winter and stored at 40? to 50?F.
