I have a begonia tuber that is very large. Can I cut it up to make more for next year ?



Click on the question on the right about cutting one in half for good advice, guest.

We used to cut large prize Begonias in half, even new ones purchased from Blackmore and Langdons at a guinea each, we dried the cut ends with a hot iron dusted in sulphur. Disbud for the best results, having up to 3 growing buds on each.
