hi to flower experts out there i.am a novice with growing flowers some I can get going brilliant last year I I re potted some cuttings of above came great with t l c this year taken them out of wall boxes .and placed in fresh compost with dry paper and membrane under plants placed in cardboaed box to keep cold off and put in them I have about 6 big plant pots that I also bring up to garden for winter in g/h for next year ( now the the small to big roots that came out of above have started to go mouldy ) what have I done wrong a bit annoyed as I got a very good show of plants from them last year and it has knocked my confidence in what I was doing it should I have covered them completely over with compost or not thanks Michael
hi all sorry I have put wrong name they where begeonias not as I said geranieums sorry
Are you trying to store the begonia tubers? If they are going mouldy they are probably to damp.
hi perki I had a idea I may have done that even though I made sure the compost was dry the dampness in g/house must have made compost a bit damp will take all out of compost and riddle some dry compost over again and put extra paper and membrane under plants ..hope that might do thanks again perki
Michael take them out of the compost and dry them off then store in a paper bag. Unless compost is bone dry you're just asking for trouble.
thanks dave morgan that was the other idea I had but went for compost thanks again do it in morning Michael
