ive also got some double-headed begonias could some one let me know if i should prune the leaves to give the flower some room to grow? thanks very much

I wouldn't pune the leaves of a Begonia - Bend them back gently to open up the plant and allow light to the buds. If there is an odd leaf that just can't be moved then remove it, but try not to take any off that can be avoided. The leaves feed the tuber and should be left on whilst the plant goes down for the winter. (They will drop off themselves when ready)
