Begonia totally drooped in the wet.
This photo doesn't show it very well, but it has flopped badly in all this wet we've been having. They weight of the water on the leaves and flowers, and perhaps too much water inside the stems? What can I do for it? Do I just wait and hope?

Such silly timing really. I posted a question and now my eye sight is suddenly failing on me. It always happens. Murphy's Law. Please can I join you all tomorrow? Will look forward to chatting with you.
Oh what a nuisance for you Jonathan,
you still have a lot of colour after all the awful weather, when do you usually dry them off for the winter?
I don't dry mine off for the winter as I have no space to do it. So I buy then new each year. When the weather gets dryer, do they just pick themselves back up again?

I get the impression that most plants that droop with the weight of water, reorganise themselves when they dry out, and the weight goes. What a lovely display you have there with new corms every year. After all, if you keep them and, they don't sprout well in spring you may miss the boat for the best buys of the most attractive forms
I do hope you are right, rather than being unreversable.
Your garden is so sheltered, unless its a really good summer....which seem to be a thing of the past.....I can only get results like yours if I keep them in a glasshouse......
No, my garden is very exposed. A windy spot mostly, but some corners have shelter.
How do I say thanks?
« Plant ID please.
This self seeded a few years ago, could it be a Laurel?
Can anyone tell me if they have an M27 Discovery Apple tree? I was thinking... »
