When to plant tuberous begonias

Is it too early (late January) to put tuberous begonias in baskets in preparation for moving them out in May? If it is, when can they be planted up?

    According to my research, you can plant begonia tubers 8 weeks before planting out (obviously when there is no more frost), so I think you may start them in Mid-March.

    I start them off indoors, without extra heat, in the middle of March with the top third of the tuber above the compost
