How do you save begonias for next season?
Store begonia tubers individually in paper bags or line them in a single layer atop newspaper. Place these in a cardboard box in a cool, dark, dry location. You should also be overwintering a begonia grown outdoors in containers. Pot-grown begonia plants can be stored in their containers as long as they remain dry.
What do you do with begonias outside in the winter?
How do you keep tuberous begonias over winter?
Remove plant from pot before hard frosts occur. Cut back most of the top of the plant, leaving the ball of roots and soil intact. Place in a dry, cool storage area (a basement or garage) and allow the tubers to cure for several weeks. After curing, shake off the soil and remove the remaining stalks and roots.
Can I bring my begonia inside for the winter?
Fibrous-rooted begonias are easy to bring indoors and grow during the winter.
Will begonias survive winter?
Yes, begonias can grow indoors over winter. Non-tuberous (aka: fibrous) varieties can easily be kept as houseplants. However, the ones that have bulbs will naturally go dormant during the winter. So all of the leaves and flowers will drop off.
