How do I store tuberous Begonias bulbs for the winter?

  1. Dig up tuberous begonia tubers just before the first frost.
  2.  Cut back the stems and foliage and remove excess soil from the tubers.
  3.  Dry them in a protected, shady, well ventilated spot, remove dried soil but do not wash bulbs
  4.  Store  in boxes or shallow trays in a cool and dry location over the winter. Bulbs should be placed in dry vermiculite, pearlite or peat moss. 
  5. Check on bulbs every few weeds and toss out any rotting bulbs.
