Begonia corms.
I have successfully over wintered my giant begonia corms but because of ill health and long stays in hospital have not got round to potting them up. Will they be ok if i keep them for next year with out growing them this year or will they shrivell up and be useless for next year. All advice appreciated. Thank you.



I think they'd be better if you shove them on top of some compost (or get someone to do it for you) and have a growing season, even if you are not able to give them any attention. I reckon they'll be past it if you leave them til next year.

Thank you Beattie, I will persevere and pot them up as it would be a shame to lose them.
