            Bought some ;) Tuberous Named Show Begonias , not going into shows but will see how I can get on with them bought a great book
            Tuberous Begonias: An Essential Guide by Jack Larter
            so lots of details on what do to etc when to pinch out , how to feed , also how to store them for the winter , I think most of us harvest to early as in the book they are still ripening the Tubers in November and they use "1 part bleach to 9 of tepid water " soak for 15 minutes they rinsed in clean water left to dry again and this kills any spores or insects etc before they put them away and a light sprinkling of yellow garden sulphur powder, so I have never done that before.

            We will wait and see , I have been meaning to get some each year but have always left it to late , yes not cheap but xmas ££ helps plus I love gardening its what I do.
