Begonias

My begonias have now died back but I don't know what to do with the tubers throughout the winter months.  Do I leave them in the pot and put them in the greenhouse or leave them outside or do I dig them out and dry them ready for next year. Anyone able to help please.  Thank you.

    Is there a time to lift them, I have about 20 in a block and they are flowering better now than all summer

  • Many thanks everyone for all your help and advice.  I can now 'deal' with the begonias this week.  They've been so beautiful throughout September and I didn't want to lose them!
