Do Begonias tubers regrow that were left in the ground all winter

Last year I had Begonias planted in my wall planter. After the first bit of frost last year they expectably perished, so I clipped them all right back to the tubers. I left these in the soil all winter. 

My question is, was this the correct thing to do, or should I have taken them out and dry stored them over winter? Also, is there any chance they will grow back again, or have I most likely killed them by leaving them out.

    They don't like frost at all so I'm afraid they're probably dead.  The usual advice is to lift and store in a dry, frost free place then start them into growth again in spring.

    Nothing to be lost by lifting them now and repotting if they're ok.
