How to plant Begonias

tattiannatattianna Posts: 182

I've bought some begonia tubers and some of them have started to sprout shoots, albeit only a very little.

I want them in hanging baskets so is it ok to plant them in the baskets now and keep them indoors until all risk of frost has gone?

How deep do I plant them?

Will it harm the new shoots if they are planted too deeply? 

Many thanks

    Before you move them into baskets-check the root systems-mine are in individuals cells and are looking good-if that is fine then yes- but well lit and not too warm.

    A bit deeper is fine but not too deep

    In a few weeks start hardening them off for going outside in -hopefully 6 weeks or so-Mid-Mayimage
